ABC YOUTH FOUNDATION WAIVER FOR CLAIMS OF MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION
Medical Treatment: Should it be necessary for my child to have medical treatment while participating in this program, I hereby give The Foundation's personnel permission to use their judgment in obtaining medical service for the child and I give permission to the physician selected by the Foundation's personnel to render medical treatment deemed necessary and appropriate by the physician. I understand that the Foundation has no insurance covering such medical and hospital costs incurred for my child and, therefore, any cost incurred for such treatment shall be my sole responsibility.
Participation: I give permission for my child to participate in all activities and for ABC Youth Foundation, which may include walking to get lunch and/or working in the neighborhood clean-up effort, or field trips.
In consideration for being permitted to participate in the ABC programs, we agree to not sue, to assume all risks, and to release and hold harmless the Foundation, and any and all of its predecessors, successors, officers, directors, deacons, trustees, insurers, employees, managers, agents, volunteers, community organizations, administrators, heirs, attorneys, executors, assigns and/or related or affiliated business entities (collectively all of the above persons and entities shall be referred to as the "Released Parties" hereafter) who, through negligence, carelessness or any other cause, might otherwise be liable to us. Any dispute arising from Parent/Guardian or Minor's participation in the ABC Youth Foundation or this agreement shall be governed by California law and shall be adjudicated in Federal or State court in San Diego County, California.
I, the Parent/Guardian, do hereby agree to indemnify the Released Parties from any and all actions, causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs (including attorneys' fees) expenses, liabilities, and charges, known or unknown (the "Liabilities") arising out of or in connection with claims and/or actions relating to or brought by or on behalf of the Minor, including without limitation, claims related to or arising out of the Minor's participation in the ABC programs. The undersigned have carefully read this Waiver and Release and fully understand its contents. The undersigned certifies that the undersigned Parent/Guardian is at least 18 years of age and is the legal guardian of the above-mentioned minor. The undersigned is aware that this is a RELEASE OF LIABILITY, COVENANT NOT TO SUE, and a contract between the undersigned and the persons and entities mentioned above and all of their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, and representatives, and the undersigned sign it of their own free will.
I have read and understood the foregoing statements agreeing to assume the responsibility stated and waive all claims indicated.
