Before continuing your participation in the "Program" in consideration for being permitted to participate in any way, you must read and the following terms and conditions of this form and agree that your participation shall be subject to the following terms:

I am 18 years of age or older and I hereby request permission to volunteer or take part.  I acknowledge and represent that my participation is not intended to constitute an employment relationship nor shall I take any position to the contrary. I acknowledge and agree that participation is and shall remain in the capacity solely as that of a volunteer and I do not expect and shall not receive any remuneration or be entitled to any payments, rights, or benefits afforded to employees under any laws, rules or regulations (including insurance coverage).

I am in good health and have no physical condition, illness or injury which would, solely or combination with any other circumstances, affect my ability to fully participate as a volunteer or expose others to risk and have not been advised otherwise by a medical practitioner. I knowingly and voluntarily accept and assume responsibility for any risks and/or dangers that could arise out of, or occur during, my participation in the Program.

I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue Westminster Presbyterian Church, its officers, employees, and agents from liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses (including death), and property loss arising from, or related to, participation in the Program. I further agree to indemnify and hold Westminster Presbyterian Church harmless from any and all claims, actions, suits, costs, expenses, damages and liabilities brought as a result of my participation in the Program and agree to reimburse Westminster Presbyterian Church for any such expenses incurred on my behalf.

I agree that the foregoing waiver, indemnification, and assumption of risks set forth above in this waiver agreement are intended to be construed as broadly and inclusively as is permitted by the laws of the United States and Canada. If any portion thereof is held invalid, the remaining portions shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.

I have read this agreement carefully, and intending to be legally bound, by submitting the “Become a Volunteer” form I acknowledge that I have voluntarily agreed to the above terms.
