RELEASE AND WAIVER
The individual named below (referred to as "I" or "me") desires to participate in the Chaviva 5K Walk & Run (the "Activity") sponsored by Chaviva High School (the "School").

I FURTHER REPRESENT TO THE SCHOOL THAT I AM IN SUFFICIENT PHYSICAL CONDITION TO PARTICIPATE IN AND COMPLETE THE ACTIVITY.
I hereby expressly waive and release any and all claims, now known or hereafter known in any jurisdiction throughout the world, against the School, and its officers, directors, employees, agents, affiliates, members, successors and assigns (collectively, "Releasees"), arising out of or attributable to my participation in the Activity, whether arising out of the negligence of the School or any of the other Releasees or otherwise. I covenant not to make or bring any such claim against the School or any of the other Releasees, and forever release and discharge the School and all other Releasees from liability under such claims.
If any term or provision of this Release is invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Release or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. This Release is binding on and shall inure to the benefit of the School and me and their/our respective successors, representatives and assigns.
BY SIGNING, I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT I AM VOLUNTARILY GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE THE SCHOOL.
