Waiver/Agreement
By clicking on "I Agree," you agree, warrant and covenant as follows:
I understand that I am required to pay a deposit of $165 for the marathon per person. I understand that I am then required to raise a total amount of $390 by July 10th, 2017.

I understand all donations are tax-deductible and non-refundable, even if I do not compete in or finish the Marine Corps Marathon. I also understand that I am obligated to make the required donations even if I do not compete in, finish, or register for the Marine Corps Marathon.

I understand that I will be given the opportunity to register for the Marine Corps Marathon only upon my completion of all forms required by the Marine Corps Marathon. I also understand that I must meet all deadlines provided by Finish for Kids and the Marine Corps Marathon. I understand that my fundraising minimum of $390 is non-refundable. I also understand my non-refundable deposit fee of $165 is separate from my minimum fundraising requirement.

I understand that I will receive my unique reservation code after having paid the $165 deposit and met my fundraising requirement of $390. I understand that I am solely responsible for the use of my unique reservation code. I understand that I will only receive my Marine Corps Marathon bib after meeting all Finish for Kids requirements including the use of this code.

I understand the intent thereof, and I, for myself, my heirs, executors, and administrators, hereby agree to absolve and hold harmless The Carefree Foundation, the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children, Finish for Kids and the sponsors and any other parties concerned with this event in any way, singularly or collectively, from and against any blame and liability of participation with The Finish for Kids Marathon Program and 10K run or any activities associated herewith.

In receiving a Marine Corps Marathon number and agreeing to participate in the event I hereby assume all responsibility for any risk and damage that may occur during my participation. I hereby, for myself, my heirs, executors, personal representatives, and administrators, release any and all rights, claims, causes of action and damages that I may have, present and future, whether they arise out of, or incident to, my participation in the Marine Corps Marathon, against FIMRC/Carefree Foundation, its officers, board members, agents, and against the US Marine Corps and its sponsors. I hereby certify that I am physically fit and will have appropriately trained for competition in the marathon on event day. In addition, my physical condition has been verified by a licensed physician. I also agree to the use of my name and/or picture in any broadcast, photograph or other account of the event.

I hereby give the Finish For Kids Marine Corps Marathon Team, its employees, and those acting with its authorization the right and permission to copyright, use, and/or publish photographic pictures of me in promotional materials, which include, but are not limited to, the FFK web site and the web site of its two charity partners (Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children and The Carefree Foundation), newsletters, brochures, and information sheets. I hereby waive any right to inspect or approve the finished copy, or printed matter that may be used in conjunction therewith or to the eventual use that might be applied. I understand that I will not receive any compensation for the use of my photograph.

I agree that all actions or proceedings arising in connection with this Agreement shall originate exclusively in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. The aforementioned choice of venue is intended by the parties to be mandatory and not permissive in nature, thereby precluding the possibility of litigation between the parties with respect to or arising out of this Agreement in any jurisdiction other than that specified in this paragraph. Each party hereby waives any right it may have to assert the doctrine of forum non conveniens or similar doctrine or to object to venue with respect to any proceeding brought in accordance with this paragraph, and stipulates that the Superior Court of the District of Columbia shall have in personam jurisdiction and venue over each of them for the purpose of litigating any dispute, controversy, or proceeding arising out of or relate to this Agreement. Each party hereby authorizes and accepts service of process sufficient for personal jurisdiction in any action against it as contemplated by this paragraph by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, to its address for the giving of notices as set forth in this Agreement. Any final judgment rendered against a party in any action or proceeding shall be conclusive as to the subject of such final judgment and may be enforced in other jurisdictions in any manner provided by law.

As consideration for the entirety of this bargain, I understand that I will receive the opportunity to register for the Marine Corps Marathon Race upon my completion of all forms required by the Marine Corps Marathon, and upon fulfillment of all of my obligations to Finish For Kids and its charity partners.
