Mercy Without Limits (MWL) Volunteer Agreement
My relationship with MWL is that of a volunteer, not an employee or a contractor. As a Volunteer, I do hereby freely, voluntarily, and without duress, give this Release under the following terms:
1. Waiver and Release
Volunteer does hereby release and forever discharge and hold harmless MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS from any and all liability, claims, and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from Volunteer’s activities with respect to the Project and does covenant not to sue any of the MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS Parties with respect to such matters.
2. Medical Treatment
Volunteer does hereby release and forever discharge MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS Parties from any claim whatsoever which arises on account of any first aid, treatment or service rendered in connection with the Volunteer’s work on the Project.
3. Assumption of the Risk
Volunteer understands that the work on the Project may include activities that may be hazardous to the Volunteer, including, but not limited to, construction and repair, painting, moving furniture and appliances, digging, handling plants, loading and unloading construction supplies and equipment, trash removal, use of tools and equipment, and transportation to and from worksites. Volunteer hereby expressly and specifically assumes the risk of injury or harm in these activities, whether caused by the negligence of a MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS Party or otherwise.
Volunteer understands that MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS does not carry or maintain health, medical, or disability insurance coverage for any Volunteer. Each Volunteer is strongly encouraged to have adequate medical or health insurance coverage in effect.
5. Media/Photographic Release
Volunteer does hereby grant and convey unto MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS all rights, title, and interest in any and all photographic images and video or audio recordings made by MERCY WITHOUT LIMITS during the Volunteer’s activities with respect to the Project, including, but not limited to, any royalties, proceeds, or other benefits derived from such photographs or recordings.
Volunteer expressly agrees that this Release is intended to be as, but only as, broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws. Volunteer agrees that in the event that any clause or provision of this Release shall be held to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision shall not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Release, all of which shall continue to be enforceable.
I have read, understood, and agree to follow Mercy Without Limits Volunteer Agreement and Waiver.
I understand and agree to these terms
