I hereby request to be permitted to participate in a volunteer event (hereafter, the "Volunteer Event") sponsored by New York Restoration Project ("NYRP"). As part of the Volunteer Event, I may work on public and private properties throughout New York City, including but not limited to: developments of the New York City Housing Authority ("NYCHA"); schoolyards and playgrounds of the New York City Department of Education ("DOE"); and streets, parks and playgrounds of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation ("Parks").
I am fully aware, and hereby acknowledge, that work of the kind I have voluntarily agreed to undertake as part of the Volunteer Event involves inherent risks and dangers, including but not limited to: hazards of travel by bus, automobile and/or other modes of transportation; forces of nature, illness or accidents while participating in Volunteer Event or related activities; and damage to or loss of personal property. Some of the work I may be invited to undertake may involve strenuous physical activity, and with this knowledge, I hereby state that I am physically fit and prepared to perform such work, and that I have no health-related conditions that will or ought to restrict my participation in physical activities at the Volunteer Event.
In consideration of being permitted to participate in the Volunteer Event and in return for the services provided by NYRP, NYCHA, DOE, Parks, our affiliates and/or their trustees, directors, officers, employees, agents, associates, corporate sponsors, Members, successors and assigns (collectively, the "Non-Profit and/or Public Parties"), I, the undersigned, hereby assume all risks and responsibilities in any way associated with or inherent in my participation in the Volunteer Event, and, intending to be legally bound, hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators, waive and release any and all rights and claims for damages I may have against the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties, including for all injuries suffered by me in said Volunteer Event, any liability that may arise because of my participation in the Volunteer Event, any liability arising from my death, or from damage to personal property or expenses in connection with the Volunteer Event, whether caused by the negligence of the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties or otherwise, and whether or not such harms were reasonably foreseeable. I also agree not to bring any legal actions against the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties based upon my participation in the Event.
I, the undersigned, voluntarily and without compensation grant permission to the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties to take and use visual/audio images of me. Visual/audio images are any type of recording, including photographs, digital images, drawings, renderings, voices, sounds, video recordings, audio clips or accompanying written descriptions. I agree that the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties own the images and all rights related to such images. The images may be used in any matter or media without notifying me, including but not limited to use in web sites, publications, promotions, broadcasts, advertisements, posters, presentations, exhibits and videos.
I further grant to the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties, without time restrictions, full rights to republish or rebroadcast these images, and to use such images in official reports and for official business of the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties. I waive any right to inspect or approve the finished images or any printed or electronic matter that may be used with such images. I release the Non-Profit and/or Public Parties, and any firm authorized to publish and/or distribute a finished product containing the images, from any claims, damages or liability which I may ever have in connection with the taking or use of the images or printed material used with the images.
I fully understand that the terms of this agreement shall bind me as well as my family members, heirs, executors, administrators, and assigns. This agreement shall be governed by New York law, and if any part of this agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this agreement shall be unaffected.
I HAVE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A RELEASE AND WAIVER OF LEGAL RIGHTS AND AN ASSUMPTION OF RISK.
