WAIVER AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
I understand that on account of my participation as a volunteer for West Houston Assistance Ministries (“WHAM”), I may be exposed to some foreseen and unforeseen risks. I knowingly accept such risks and, fully understanding such risks, nonetheless wish to participate as a volunteer for WHAM. Therefore, on my own behalf and on behalf of my heirs, representatives, administrators and assigns, and to the extent permitted by law, I hereby forever waive, discharge and release any and all liability, claims, demands, causes of action, suits and rights of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, I, or anyone else on my behalf, might have against WHAM or its officers, directors, agents, representatives, employees, volunteers, successors and assigns (collectively, the “WHAM Affiliated Persons”). Further, I agree that I will not, nor will I allow anyone else acting on my behalf to, bring or maintain any lawsuit or other action against WHAM or any WHAM Affiliated Person for any claim that I might have arising out of my participation in any activities sponsored by, sanctioned by or approved by WHAM or any WHAM Affiliated Person. For the purpose of implementing a full and complete release, I understand and agree that this waiver is intended to include all claims, if any, which I may have and which I do not now know or suspect to exist in my favor against WHAM and this waiver extinguishes those claims. I understand and acknowledge that this Waiver and release of Liability discharges WHAM and any WHAM Affiliated Person from any liability or claim that I may have against WHAM or any WHAM Affiliated Person with respect to any bodily injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from my participation as a volunteer for WHAM, whether or not caused by the negligence, gross negligence, or intention al conduct of WHAM or any WHAM Affiliated Person. I also understand that, except as otherwise agreed to by WHAM in writing, neither WHAM nor any WHAM Affiliated Person is responsible for or obligated to provide financial assistance to me or to anyone else, including but not limited to medical, health, or disability insurance, in the event of injury or illness. I hereby warrant that I am of full age and have the right to contract my own name. I have read the above Waiver and Release of Liability prior to its execution and I voluntarily bind myself to its terms.
