This document governs your participation in Team RWB Activities.
Team RWB is an inclusive organization, and attempts to deliver varying events and activities,
both at the local and national level, that accommodate all physical abilities and fitness levels. It
is the responsibility of individual participants to work with appropriate medical professionals to
determine which activities and events best align with their abilities and fitness levels.

including any and all associated training and development activities during Team RWB Physical
Fitness Events and/or Team RWB Social and Community Service Events (collectively, “Team
RWB Activities”), and have taken into consideration any potential limitations including those
communicated by medical personnel. My medical and/or physical condition will not endanger
myself or others if I participate in Team RWB activities. As stated below, participation in
Physical Fitness Activities presents an inherent risk of injury to person and property. I certify
that, to the best of my knowledge, i will take into consideration any known medical or physical
conditions before agreeing to participate in Team RWB activities. Additionally, I certify that I

that may arise from my participation in Team RWB Activities.
