Michael and Terry Ward Donate $1 Million to Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)
Date:7/30/2008

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), a non-profit organization that honors and empowers wounded warriors, today announced that Michael Ward, chairman and chief executive officer of CSX Corporation, and his wife Terry have personally contributed $1 million toward education and rehabilitation.

The $1 million donation is to support WWP's new initiative called Training Rehabilitation Advocacy Center (TRACK), which offers wounded warriors critical services to complete their transition to civilian lives. With this funding, WWP will build a new education center and create a 12-month education and rehabilitation program based at WWP headquarters in Jacksonville.

The Wards' personal donation follows CSX's $100,000 sponsorship of WWP's Warriors to Work program, which helps service members recovering from catastrophic injuries to build careers in the civilian workforce.

"Michael and Terry's amazing generosity cannot be overstated and is a prime example of the good that corporate leaders and their families can do," said John Melia, WWP Executive Director. "By funding TRACK, as well as our Warriors to Work program, the Wards and CSX are giving the severely wounded men and women of our armed forces access to all of the skills, education and preparation necessary to not only find a job, but to find a career in which they will thrive and succeed."

As part of TRACK, students will receive a scholarship, as well as housing and living expenses. Florida Community College at Jacksonville will provide TRACK classes that can be applied toward a variety of degrees, and warriors will continue with concurrent physical rehabilitation. Internships and part-time employment also will be offered students.

"Terry and I are grateful, as are all Americans, for the sacrifice of these brave men and women who put their lives at risk to ensure our freedom," Ward said. "They have given so much to us, and we are pleased to give
