The information that I have provided may be verified, and I give permission to Special Olympics to make inquiry of others which may include a criminal background check to determine my suitability to act as a Special Olympics volunteer. I understand that Special Olympics may refuse to allow me to volunteer if I provided any incorrect information or omission.

The relationship between Special Olympics and volunteers is an “at will” arrangement, and I understand that my volunteer service can be denied, modified or terminated with or without notice or cause, at any time, at the option of Special Olympics or at my option and that Special Olympics may, in its sole discretion, decline to accept my application for volunteer with or without cause.

I grant Special Olympics, Inc. permission to use my likeness, voice, and words in or on television, radio, print, film, on Special Olympics, Inc.’s website(s), or in any other form, format, or media, to promote Special Olympics and its mission and to raise funds for Special Olympics.

I release, indemnify, covenant not to sue, and hold harmless Special Olympics, its administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, employees, other participants, sponsors, advertisers, and if applicable, any owners and lessors of premises on which the activity takes place (the "Releasees") from all liability, any losses, claims (other than that of the medical accident benefit), demands, costs, or damages that I (and/or my minor child) may incur as a result of my participation and further agree that if, despite this Release, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the Releasees from any litigation expenses, attorney fees, loss, liability, damage or cost which may incur as a result of such claim.
