WAIVER & AGREEMENT
Welcome to the 2019 ALCF Team A Breath Away for the 2019 NYC United Airlines Half Marathon!
YOUR FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT
The ALCF Endurance Events Program is a fundraising effort for the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation. You will receive a guaranteed entry (you are responsible for the race registration fee which is: $130 for NYRR members and $145 for non-members) and team member amenities including fundraising support (including a personal online donation page), training support, a team jersey and crowd cheer supplies for your supporters in exchange for your fundraising efforts.
Please know that we will help you every step of the way to reach your goal. These are campaigns built on $50, $100 and even $25 donations. Your friends, family and coworkers will support you. We will provide you with lots of suggestions and proven ways to reach your goal, but you must be willing to do the work on your end to solicit donations.
By signing this form and joining this team you are committing to raise at least $500 for the event. You agree to raise at least 50% of that total fundraising requirement by 4 weeks before the event (February 17th, 2019), and to raise the entire amount by one week prior to the event March 10th, 2019). You understand that ALCF reserves the right to charge your credit card, as entered on this ALCF Team registration form, for any shortfall of your commitment as outlined above.
You are responsible for raising the fundraising minimum, even if for any reason, including injury or illness, you are unable to participate in the Event. Enforcement of this policy is at the discretion of the ALCF Endurance Events staff. You must contact the ALCF Endurance Events office ([email protected]) as early as possible, in writing, if you are not able to participate.
In the event that we are able to find another runner to take your place, you will be released from your fundraising commitment after you have either made a donation or collected donations of at least 10% of the fundraising commitment ($50).
Any monies that have been collected from you before you leave the team are nonrefundable.
Your fundraising commitment does not cover the cost of event entry. You are responsible for any registration fees associated with the event. In order for ALCF to continue to maintain its outstanding record of delivering nearly 90% of funds raised to lung cancer research and patient services, athletes are responsible for their transportation and hotels costs.
I agree to be responsive to the ALCF Endurance Events staff with regard to my fundraising progress or lack thereof, and will keep the ALCF Endurance Events staff up to date with regard to any change of address, email or phone contact information. Failure to make fundraising progress or to communicate with the ALCF Endurance Events staff will open the team member to the possibility of losing their spot on the team.
I hereby further grant permission to the ALCF to use, or authorize others to use, any photographs, motion pictures, recordings, or any other record of my participation in the Event and as a member of the ALCF Endurance Events Team A Breath Away for any legitimate purpose with my knowledge.
Note that all team members are required to wear the ALCF branded technical team jersey for this event.
WAIVER, RELEASE FORM AND CONTRIBUTION AGREEMENT
I acknowledge that participating in this event as a member of ALCF Team A Breath Away, including pre-event training and related team activities is a potentially hazardous activity. I hereby agree not to participate unless I am medically able and properly trained. I agree to abide by any decision of an Event official relative to my ability to safely complete the event. I am voluntarily entering and assume all risks associated with participating in this event. I grant the Medical Director of the Event and their designee access to my medical records and physicians, as well as other information, relating to medical care that may be administered to me as a result of my participation in the athletic event.
Having read this Waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of my acceptance of this application, I, for myself, and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, and its representatives and successors, officers, directors, members, agents and employees from all present and future claims and liabilities of any kind, known or unknown, arising out of my participation as a member of the ALCF Team A Breath Away even though that liability may arise out of ordinary negligence or fault.
