MINIMUMS & COMMITMENTS

MINIMUMS

COMMITMENTs

Fundraising Agreement and Cancellation Policy

As a participant in the PMC Winter Cycle, in addition to paying the registration fee ($50 for Fenway riders and $25 for virtual riders), I agree to collect the ($1,000 for Fenway riders and $100 for virtual riders) fundraising minimum (the “Minimum”) for the benefit of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

I agree to be personally responsible to PMC for the shortfall if I fail to collect the entire Minimum amount by the March 1 deadline; I understand that the outstanding balance toward the Minimum will be charged to my credit card if I have not met the fundraising requirement by the March 1 deadline.

I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT THE SEPARATE ($50 for Fenway riders and $25 for virtual riders) REGISTRATION FEE IS NOT REFUNDABLE AND DOES NOT APPLY TOWARD THE MINIMUM; AND I UNDERSTAND THAT NEITHER MY REGISTRATION, NOR MY REGISTRATION FEE CAN BE TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER RIDER IF I CHOOSE NOT TO, OR AM UNABLE TO RIDE.

Cancellation Policy
I acknowledge and agree that by registering for the PMC Winter Cycle, I am obliged to raise the fundraising minimum ($1,000 for Fenway riders and $100 for virtual riders) whether or not I participate in the event. The minimum is due by March 1, 2021. If I have not submitted the appropriate minimum by March 1, 2021, the outstanding balance towards the minimum fundraising requirement will be charged to my credit card.

PARTICIPANT RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK
In consideration for my [and/or my child(ren) or ward(s)], being permitted to participate in, work at, volunteer at, and/or observe the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, Inc. (“PMC”) Winter Cycle and related events and utilize the services and facilities associated with those events, I, on behalf of myself [and my child(ren), ward(s)] and any personal representatives, heirs, and next of kin (together, "the Undersigned") hereby state as follows:

Generally

1. I acknowledge and agree that the risk of injury, damage or property loss from participation in PMC Winter Cycle and related events as a rider, worker, volunteer or observer is significant, including the potential for permanent physical harm to me, including death, and/or property damage or loss, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce those risks, the risk of serious injury does exist, as does the risk of property damage or loss;

2. I acknowledge and understand that photographs and/or videos may be taken of me [and/or my child(ren) or ward(s)] in connection with the Winter Cycle and related events, and hereby consent to the taking of such photographs and videos and the publication of such photographs and videos; and

3. I agree to comply with the stated and customary terms and conditions for participation in Winter Cycle and related events, including that, if I observe an unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I agree to bring the hazard to the attention of the nearest official immediately and, as appropriate, remove myself from participation.

Covid-19 Related

4. agree, represent, and warrant that I will not [and my child(ren) or ward(s) will not] participate, in person, in services or programs related to PMC or the Winter Cycle or visit the facilities associated with the Winter Cycle if I [or they] (i) experience symptoms of COVID-19, including, without limitation, fever, cough, loss of sense of taste or smell, or shortness of breath, or (ii) have a suspected or diagnosed/confirmed case of COVID-19, or, (iii) within the preceding 14 days, (a) have been exposed to any person who has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, (b) have returned from highly impacted areas subject to a Center for Disease Control (“CDC”) Level 3 Travel Health Notice, or (c) have been exposed to any person returning from areas subject to a CDC Level 3 Travel Health Notice;

Because of public health concerns associated with COVID-19, or other public considerations, I understand that my [and/or my child(ren)’s or ward(s)’] participation in the Winter Cycle and/or related events may have to be “reimagined” or “virtual,” rather than conducted in the standard or in-person manner.
