I wish to register the child identified below (referred to as the "child") and (if applicable) myself to participate in the General PMC Kids Rides 2023 Kids Ride (the "Event") sponsored by Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, Inc. ("PMC") to raise funds for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute ("DFCI"). On behalf of myself and the child:
1. Legal Authority. I hereby represent and warrant that I am the parent or legal guardian of the child and that I have the legal authority to complete and execute this Agreement on my and the child's behalf, and to make use of the credit or debit card to which registration fees will be charged. By proceeding with this registration, I agree that the terms of this Agreement will apply to me and the child, and to our heirs, personal representatives and assigns.
2. Provision and Use of Information. I hereby acknowledge that, in proceeding with this registration, I am providing certain information to PMC, its contractors and/or their employees and/or agents about myself and the child, including information that I may voluntarily provide to create a personal PMC Kids Ride web page for myself and/or the child to facilitate fundraising. I agree and consent to the collection and use of this information about myself and the child for purposes of registration and fundraising for the Event, and I acknowledge that any information I provide to establish a personal web page on the PMC Kids Ride website for myself and/or the child is provided entirely voluntarily. I understand that PMC will take reasonable steps to protect any information that I may submit online or that PMC may collect during or in relation to the Event. I also understand, however, that PMC cannot guarantee the security of any information provided or collected.
3. Photographs/Videos. I understand that, during the course of or in connection with the Event, photographs/videos may be taken of me or the child, and that such photographs/videos may be posted on the PMC and/or the PMC Kids Ride, or the DFCI website(s) or otherwise utilized to publicize the Event or for fundraising purposes. I hereby consent to the taking of photographs/videos of myself and/or the child in connection with the Event, and to the publication of such photographs/videos on the PMC and/or PMC Kids Ride and/or DFCI websites, and/or in PMC, PMC Kids Ride and/or DFCI publications to publicize the Event and/or for fundraising purposes.
4. Illness, Infectious Disease Related. On behalf of myself the child, I hereby further:
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 the PMC or visit the facilities associated with the PMC if I [or they] (i) are experiencing symptoms of a serious infectious disease or illness, including but not limited to COVID-19 (which term, for purposes of this agreement, includes its variants and similar illnesses), or (ii) have a suspected or confirmed case of such a disease or illness.
acknowledge that, due to the nature of infectious diseases and illnesses and the nature of the events, services and facilities associated with the PMC and similar organizations: (i) transmission of such diseases and illnesses cannot be ruled out, and that (ii) despite any PMC efforts to mitigate such dangers, the PMC cannot guarantee that my [or my child(ren)’s or ward(s)’] participation in the PMC and/or related events, services and facilities will not result in exposure to infectious diseases or illnesses, which could in turn result in quarantine or isolation requirements, serious illness, disability, and/or death.
5. acknowledge and agree that, if prior to a PMC ride or event, PMC chooses to implement additional or modified pre-conditions to participate in that ride or in that event, or chooses to implement other safety measures, I [and my child(ren) and/or ward(s)] will abide by those pre-conditions and/or safety measures.
6. Consent to Treatment. As parent or legal guardian of the child, I hereby give my consent to seek, obtain, and/or provide emergency medical treatment for the child in case of injury that occurs while participating in the Event. This care may be given under whatever conditions are necessary to preserve the life, limb, or well-being of the child. I understand that such treatment will be sought and provided only in an apparent emergency and that reasonable efforts will be made to contact me before providing such treatment.
7. Assumption of Risk/Release – Participation in the Event and Related Activities. I understand that, even with adherence to reasonable safety practices and policies, and the use of protective equipment, there exists a risk of injury to those who participate in a cycling event such as the Event, which may be held over public roads and facilities which are open to the public during the Event. I acknowledge that such injuries could be catastrophic, including death. I hereby assume responsibility for myself and the child during and in connection with the Event. I further agree to accompany the child to the Event, and to take responsibility for monitoring the child’s activities and interactions during the Event, and I understand that neither I, nor the child, should participate in the Event unless we are both physically and medically able to do so.

Each PMC Kids Ride participant has his or her own online fundraising page. PMC Kids Ride registration is completed as a family and the adult completing registration will have the option to set up a family fundraising page (ideal for families with more than one child participating in a PMC Kids Ride) in addition to each rider's fundraising page.
Families are encouraged to share these links by email and on social media to solicit donations for the PMC Kids Ride.
