MUST READ: FUNDRAISING AGREEMENT & LIABILITY WAIVER

YOUR FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT: Team Save the Children Bank of America Chicago Marathon is a fundraising effort for Save the Children Federation, Inc. (SCUS). You will receive a guaranteed race entry for the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon as well as signature team amenities including access to personalized training plans, fundraising support (including a personal online fundraising page), custom tech tee and great swag to fashion on race day, from SCUS in exchange for your fundraising efforts.

SCUS has a limited number of guaranteed entries available for the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Those entries are awarded based upon the participant's ability to meet the minimum fundraising requirement. By agreeing to these terms and joining the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Team Save the Children group you are committing to raise at least $1,500. You agree to raise the full amount by one week before race day, October 1, 2017 11:59PM EST . You understand that SCUS reserves the right to charge your credit card for any shortfall of your commitment as outlined above.

Please know that we will help you every step of the way to reach your goal. These campaigns are built on $100, $250, $500, and even $1000 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.

CANCELLATION POLICY: 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. You must contact the SCUS Endurance Program Coordinator, Sara Abrams (team@savechildren.org or sabrams@savechildren.org) as early as possible in writing, if you are not able to participate. Any monies that have been collected from you before you leave the team are nonrefundable. Charity entries cannot be deferred or transferred.

EVENT REGISTRATION: Your registration fee for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon is separate from your fundraising and will be paid at registration through the race directly. Athletes will be responsible for paying their own travel and hotel expenses. This allows SCUS to continue its outstanding record of delivering nearly 90% of its SCUS budget toward providing immediate and lasting change to children in the US and around the world.

OTHER: I agree to be responsive to SCUS Endurance Events staff with regard to my fundraising progress or lack thereof, and will keep SCUS Endurance Events staff up to date with regard to any change of address, email or phone contact information, and/or the credit card information provided on the bottom of this form. Failure to make fundraising progress or to communicate with SCUS Endurance Events staff will open the team member to the possibility of losing their spot on the team.

I hereby further grant permission to SCUS to use, or authorize others to use, any photographs, videos, recordings, or any other record of my participation in the Event and as a member of SCUS Team Save the Children for any legitimate purpose in perpetuity.

LIABILITY WAIVER:

COMPLETE RELEASE OF LIABILITY AGREEMENT: I acknowledge that participating in a marathon, half marathon, cycling event, triathlon or any other athletic event as a member of SCUS Team Save the Children, 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 this Event and assume all risks associated with participation. 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, my heirs, successors, assigns, legal representatives, and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release Save the Children Federation, Inc., 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 SCUS Team Save the Children even though that liability may arise out of ordinary negligence or fault.
I agree I decline
