Light the Night 2020 - Volunteer Sign-up

We need volunteers for the Light the Night 2020 event on September 24, 2020. If you are interested, fill out the sign-up form here:

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and MTD are planning to organize Light the Night event. Each fall for the last 12 years, the member agencies of the Light the Night Organizing Group, along with volunteers, have installed 800 to 1,000 bike light sets on bikes in the Urbana-Champaign area. 

This year, Light the Night distribution event will be held at three outside locations:

  1. Wright Street and Green Street, near the Alma Mater
  2. Lincoln Avenue and Illinois Street, near the Hallene Gateway
  3. Campus Bike Center at 51 E. Gregory Drive, Champaign

The Alma Mater location and the Hallene Gateway locations have hosted this event over the last several years, and this year Campus Bike Center has been added as a host location. The distribution times will be from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on September 24, 2020. 

Warning and Waiver about COVID-19:

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited the congregation of groups of people.

While COVID-19 can cause mild symptoms in some individuals, it can lead to severe illness and even death in others. Adults over age 65 and people of any age with serious underlying medical conditions including, but not limited to, HIV, asthma and other respiratory conditions, and pregnancy, may be a higher risk for more serious complications from COVID-19.

The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has been cleared to bring students back, and MTD has been operating during the pandemic. We will provide services in the community and have put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Light the Night Organizing Group cannot guarantee that you will not become infected with COVID-19. 

By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that I may be exposed to or infected by COVID-19 by continuing to work onsite at the Light the Night event and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Light the Night event may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Light the Night Organizing Group, volunteers, and program participants and their families.

My decision to continue working onsite at the Light the Night event is voluntary, exclusively my own, and made in full understanding and acceptance of the foregoing risks.
