As a CDF Turkey Trot Event participant, I understand and agree to the following:  

► I will set a fundraising goal to support the mission of the Celiac Disease Foundation (“CDF”) and will use my best efforts to achieve (or exceed!) that amount. If I am unable to participate in my chosen event or complete my effort for any reason, I accept responsibility for donating to and will promptly deliver any money that I raise to CDF.  

► I grant a perpetual, royalty-free license to Celiac Disease Foundation to use my name, image and/or likeness for the purpose of promoting the Event in any manner worldwide – either in print material, radio or television broadcast, online or any other medium, in any manner whether presently in existence or hereinafter developed.  

► I acknowledge that I have voluntarily agreed to be an Event participant. I hereby, for myself and my heirs, administrators, and executors covenant not to sue and release, waive and forever discharge, CDF and its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, volunteers, representatives, successors, assigns or anyone acting for or on their behalf (“Releasees”), from all claims, demands, actions or causes of action, losses, damages, costs or injuries of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, arising from or by reason of any bodily injury or personal injuries known or unknown, death, or property damage resulting from my participation in the Event, or any activities in connection with the Event whether caused by the negligence of any Releasees or otherwise or on account of first-aid or other medical treatment or service, if any, rendered during or as a result of my participation in the Event. I hereby, for myself and my heirs, administrators, and executors agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Releasees, from all liabilities, losses, damages, or costs of any nature whatsoever (including court costs and legal fees) incurred by any Releasees as a result of my participation in the Event or any other activities related to the Event.  

► I certify that I am aware of the physical demands and hazards of training for and participating in the Event, and that I am physically fit and will train sufficiently for participation in the Event.  

► I acknowledge that I am responsible for all Event or effort costs and understand that if the Event is cancelled at any time and for any reason, of if I request to be removed from the Event, there will be no refund of Event expenses paid.  

► I acknowledge that CDF will not issue tax receipts or let me use the CDF’s 501(c)3 status for any sponsorship donations I receive.

This includes, but is not limited to, press releases, pitch letters, printed or electronic advertisements, save-the-dates and invitations, brochures, items, and any other form of Event collateral. When describing the Event in a press release and/or interview, it will be made clear that the Event is to benefit the Celiac Disease Foundation.  

► I may create materials and items (shirts, hats, etc.) for the Event as long as the items are not being sold. I acknowledge that CDF staff must review and approve items before they are made public. I acknowledge and agree that I will not use the CDF logo.  

► I will notify CDF staff before making requests for celebrity involvement.
