may have or which may hereinafter accrue with respect to any bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death or property damage which
arise or may hereafter arise from or is in any way related to my Activities with any of the Released Parties, whether caused wholly or
in part by the simple negligence, fault or other misconduct, other than intentional or grossly negligent conduct, of any of the Released
Parties or of other volunteers. I understand and acknowledge that by this Release I knowingly assume the risk of injury, harm and loss
associated with the Activities. I also understand that the Released Parties do not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide

whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of any first aid, treatment or service rendered in connection with my
Activities with any of the Released Parties.
Assumption of the Risk: I, the Volunteer, understand that my Activities may include work that may be hazardous to me, including,
but not limited to, the following: construction; loading and unloading; travel to and from the work sites; and exposure to lead,
asbestos, and mold, which may cause or worsen certain illnesses, especially if I do not wear protective equipment, am exposed for
extended periods of time, or have a pre-existing immune system deficiency. I also understand there is some inherent risk in
consuming foods. I further understand insurrection, criminal activities, inclement weather or other circumstances that could threaten
my health or safety.
