Girls on the Run Contract

I understand this is an application process. Placement with a student or Girls on the Run team is not guaranteed and is dependent upon the outcomes of the screening process. I agree to make a commitment to participate through the 7-10 week season. If an appointment with my student/team cannot be kept, I will notify the Girls on the Run Coordinator. As a new volunteer, I will attend the Coach Training session, usually held in September and February. As a Girls on the Run volunteer, I understand that any information about Girls on the Run participants, other students, teachers and/or parents of students, attained or assumed through performance of my duties is confidential. I agree that I will not share any of this information in conversation, writing or social media forums such as Facebook or Twitter. If I feel it is important to share information, I will share it only with the Girls on the Run manager and/or the Girls on the Run site liaison. If I suspect child abuse or neglect, I will inform the Girls on the Run program manager and make a report to the Child Abuse Hot Line. If the child is in immediate danger, I will report first and then inform the Girls on the Run program manager. If I am unable to keep my commitment to meet regularly with the student/team, I will notify the Girls on the Run program manager as soon as possible as well as schedule a final meeting with the student/team for closure. I understand that GOTR is an after school program during the school year. Supervision of GOTR volunteers is provided within these times. No meetings are permitted off-campus (except at end of the year 5k). I understand that if I am found guilty of a criminal offense during the mentoring year, I will notify my Girls on the Run program manager. Depending upon the nature of the offense, I may be asked to resign from the program. I understand that there is zero tolerance for alcohol and drug use in the Public Schools and if I meet with my student/team while under the influence, I may be asked to resign from the program. I understand that during the program, the I, the Participant, will be involved in outdoor physical activities. Physical reactions to exercise may include heat-related illness, abnormal heartbeats and blood pressure and, in rare instances, events such as heart attacks. While Girls on the Run takes all reasonable precautions, we can make no guarantees regarding these and other risks. Recognizing the risks of the program, and in consideration for allowing the Participant to participate in the program, I hereby release, discharge and agree to hold harmless, and to indemnify each of the Girls on the Run council conducting the Girls on the Run® program for Participant and Girls on the Run International, and Thrive,  their owners, directors, affiliates, officers, contributors, sponsors, employees, contractors, agents and assigns against and from any and all causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, loss of services, expenses, compensation, consequential damages and attorneys’ fees (regardless whether pursuant to the laws of any county, state or country) claimed by, through or on behalf of me or the Participant related directly or indirectly to the program (including without limitation the 5k race), and specifically including any and all claims for personal injuries sustained while participating in program activities without regard to negligence or negligent conditions. In addition, I hereby authorize Girls on the Run, if after a reasonable attempt has been made to reach a parent, guardian or emergency contact to obtain consent, or if sound medical practice decrees that there is not time to make such an attempt, to consent to any x-ray examination, anesthetic, dental, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment, and hospital care, to be rendered to the Participant under the general or special supervision and on the advice of any physician or surgeon who may treat the Participant, and consent to any x-ray examination, anesthetic, dental, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment and hospital care, to be rendered to the Participant by any health care professional who may treat the Participant. I agree to pay for any such treatment and to reimburse Girls on the Run for all costs and expenses it may incur related to such treatment. I expressly agree that this consent is intended to be as broad and inclusive a release of liability as permitted by applicable law and that if any provision thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the remaining provisions shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect. I hereby warrant and represent that I am 18 years old or older; I have carefully read this consent and agree to its terms and conditions, that before signing this agreement I had the chance to ask questions; and I am aware that by signing this consent, I assume all risks and waive and release certain substantial rights that I and Participant may have or possess against Girls on the Run council conducting the Girls on the Run® program for Participant and Girls on the Run International. To the extent permitted by applicable law, I hereby irrevocably and unconditionally waive trial by jury in any legal action or proceeding related to this agreement.
