As a part of my volunteering for The Next Step Foundation, I understand:
1. My services are provided on a volunteer basis, without compensation of any kind, and
2. My services are performed at my own risk, and
3. My services may include known and unknown risks that could result in physical or emotional injury/damage to me, my property, and/or third parties. These risks may include but aren’t limited to trips, falls, bruises, scratches, and insect bites. I certify I have adequate insurance to cover any injury/damage I incur volunteering, or agree to bear the costs of such injury/damage myself. I also certify I assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have. Therefore, on behalf of myself, my heirs, personal representatives and executors, I release and waive all claims against The Next Step Foundation for personal injuries or damages to property sustained by myself or any person under my custody, including claims arising in whole or in part from the negligence of The Next Step Foundation, its agents or employees, except for claims of intentional, willful, fraudulent or criminal misconduct by The Next Step Foundation, its agents or employees, and
4. My services may result in the capturing of me in photographs and/or film footage. I am aware that my photo may be taken at any time and agree to this term. As such, I also hereby consent to and authorize The Next Step Foundation, its publishers, licensees, and assignees permission to use and reproduce photographs and/or film footage of me in whole or in part, with or without names, for editorial, trade or advertising purposes. I waive any right to inspect or approve the finished photographs, film, video, recordings, advertising copy or the printed matter. I waive all claims arising from such use for any additional compensation, damages, and invasion of privacy.
I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document and I read, understand it, and agree to be bound by its terms. Furthermore, I warrant all statements made herein are true and correct and understand that releasees have relied on them in allowing me to volunteer. Checking "I have read and agree to the terms above" below constitutes as my legal signature and that I acknowledge and certify I have read the foregoing.
