THIS AGREEMENT CONSTITUTES AN EXPRESS CONTRACTUAL ASSUMPTION OF ALL RISKS, WAIVER AND RELEASE FROM ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY NEGLIGENCE AND INDEMNITY FOR ALL THIRD PARTY CLAIMS. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!
I know that skateboarding is an inherently dangerous sport and activity in which I choose to voluntarily participate at my own risk. I am aware that the usual risks, hazards and dangers of personal injury, death and disability or property damage and loss (collectively, “damages”), necessarily increase when using rails, jumps, boxes, quarter pipes, inclines or declines, or any other structure and device. I know that the risks, hazards and dangers include, but are not limited to, uncontrollable boards, falling, jumping, landing, performing tricks, colliding with other users, staff, media personnel and spectators. I also understand that these risks, hazards and dangers are further increased when other persons, whether or not of the same level of experience or skill, are present at the same time and using the same facilities. (All of the above defined activities are collectively referred to throughout this Agreement as “the Hazardous Activities.”)
By this agreement, it is my intention to relieve Business Logistics Development [DBA Chicago Action Sports], Chicago Park District and all partners, venue operators and owners, and any managers, employees, officers, directors, agents, contractors, volunteers, vendors, or exhibitors or any other person, company or entity in any way associated with such entities (hereinafter, "Sponsors") of any duty to me and I DO ASSUME THE ENTIRE risk of any of the Damages that might occur during or as a result of my use of, or presence at the GO GRIND Clinics (hereinafter "Event") at the Chicago Park District Skateparks on June/September, 2018. By this agreement I also intend to RELEASE, DISCHARGE AND ABSOLVE Sponsors from any and all liability for any active or passive negligence whatsoever by Sponsors and to WAIVE AND RELINQUISH any claim or cause of action against Sponsors for any loss, claim, damage, personal injury, disability, death, medical and any other type of expense or property damage or loss caused by any negligence of Sponsors and promise not to sue or exercise any legal right to seek damages from Sponsors.
In consideration of participating in the Event at the Chicago Park District Skateparks, I agree as follows:
1. As to my participation in any activity, including, but not limited to, the Hazardous Activities and as to any and all liability for the Damages, which I may suffer or incur due to any cause whatsoever, I hereby agree:
a. To WAIVE any and all claims for Damages that I may have against Sponsors;
b. To RELEASE Sponsors from any and all liability for the Damages that I may suffer or incur, or that my next of kin may suffer as a result of participation in any activity, including but not limited to, Hazardous Activities while at Event.
c. To HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY Sponsors from any and all liability for the Damages to any third party resulting from my participation in any activity, including but not limited to, the Hazardous Activities while at Event.
d. This waiver and release of liability and indemnification agreement (collectively, referred to hereafter as “Waiver and Release”) shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, family, relatives, guardians, conservators, executors, administrators, trustees and assigns in the event of my injury, disability or death.
2. This event may be filmed and photographed. By attending the event, I consent to the recording/filming and the use of my likeness and image for the purpose of the filming/photography. I hereby grant Sponsors permission to utilize my name, and/or any photographs, videos, and likeness of me in any related advertising or promotional campaigns as Sponsors may deem appropriate from time to time, all without additional compensation to me. This assignment includes the transfer to Sponsors of all right, title and interest in any photographs, videos, and likenesses captured at this event.
3. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of Illinois. I agree that this Agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the state of Illinois and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
THE UNDERSIGNED FURTHER CERTIFIES that he/she has no medical condition that would cause participation in Event to be potentially hazardous to his or her health. In addition, this agreement shall constitute authorization for Sponsors, to provide or cause to be provided such medical treatment to the undersigned as may be necessary or appropriate if an injury occurs while at Event.
THE UNDERSIGNED CERTIFY that I [We] am (are) the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of
