BY BECOMING A VOLUNTEER AT THE CENTER FOR COMMUNITY OUTREACH FOR SUPER SERVICE SATURDAY 2020, I AGREE TO THE TERMS STATED BELOW:

I wish to participate in Super Service Saturday (the “Activity”). I understand that I do so at my own risk. In exchange for being permitted to participate in the Activity, I hereby release the University of Kansas, the State of Kansas, the Kansas Board of Regents, the Center for Community Outreach, the University of Kansas Memorial Corporation, the Center for Civic and Social Responsibility, the University of Kansas Student Senate, and all employees, officers, agents, representatives, and volunteers of the foregoing (all collectively referred to as the “Released Parties”) from liability for and hereby waive any and all claims for any loss, damage, injuries to person or property, death, claims, demands, lawsuits, expenses, and any other liability of any kind, of or to me or any other person, directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with my participation in or attendance at the Activity.

I further agree to hold harmless, indemnify, and reimburse the Released Parties from and for any sums, costs, or expenses incurred by any of the Released Parties or paid by them to any person (including me or my insurers) in connection with any accident loss, damage, injury to person or property, or death sustained by me or others in connection with my attendance at or participation in the Activity. This means that I will reimburse the Released Parties if anyone makes a claim against them based on damages or injuries to person or property that I may suffer or cause.

Further, I request upon my own initiative and application to receive volunteer instruction when the program lends itself to such instruction. I understand that as I am requesting such instruction by nonprofessionals, that I willingly waive and release all future claims against them as stated above.

Having read and understood the above, by submitting my volunteer application I freely accept the terms of this release and hold harmless agreement. Additionally, I agree that the Center for Community Outreach may use photographs of me with or without my name for any lawful purpose, including for example such purposes as publicity, advertising, and Web content.

TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS EVENT, PLEASE SIGN THE PARTICIPANT FORM TO AGREE TO THESE TERMS.
