Participant Waiver and Release

I understand that my family or group will be participating at an ELI Project event and will be participating at our own risk. I acknowledge that our participation is voluntary and does not constitute a condition or requirement of employment. I attest that I am physically fit and prepared for this event.

I will not create an unsafe situation for other individuals or myself. Nor will I engage in any task with which I am not completely comfortable. I will abide by all applicable federal, state and local laws, as well as the rules and directions of the sponsors and coordinators. If I see any situation that I feel is unsafe, I will immediately call it to the attention of an ELI Project coordinator.

If I bring any children or young adults with me to participate, I will be solely responsible for providing for their safety and will keep them under close supervision at all times. FOR EACH PARTICIPANT UNDER 18, THE PARENT OR GUARDIAN IS ASSUMING ALL RESPONSIBILITY BY COMPLETING THIS WAIVER. I understand that a volunteer may provide medical treatment in the event of an injury, and if necessary to assist in arranging transportation to medical facilities.

On behalf of myself, as well as my heirs, executors, administrators and assigns, I hereby forever release, discharge, waive and agree to indemnify and hold harmless ELI Project, and any additional sponsors, and vendors,  along with their respective officers, directors, agents, employees, contractors, successors and assigns, and any volunteers to whom I give my consent to provide medical treatment to me or to any children or young adults under my supervision (“Released Parties”), from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, causes of action, obligations, liabilities, suits, losses, damages, costs, expenses, and fees, including, without limitation, court costs and attorneys’ fees, of any and every nature of character, including, without limitation, for death, personal injury and/or loss of property, whether anticipated or unanticipated, directly or indirectly, whether caused, in whole or in part, by the sole or concurrent negligence or wrongdoings, strict liability or fault of the Released Parties or otherwise, arising out of or connected in any way with my participation in this event.

I hereby grant ELI Project full and complete permission to use photographs, videography, and interview footage and quotations from me in legitimate promotions to further the mission and vision of ELI Project in any and all media now known or hereinafter developed without restriction or compensation.

I understand that I have given up substantial rights by agreeing to this Waiver and have agreed to it freely and voluntarily without any inducement, assurance or guarantee being made to me and I INTEND MY SIGNATURE (physical or electronic) TO BE A COMPLETE AND UNCONDITIONAL RELEASE of all liability by Released Parties to the greatest extent allowed by law.
