I acknowledge and fully understand that I (or my minor child) will be engaging in activities at MAG Church, including transportation to and from MAG Church, that involve risks of serious bodily injury, including permanent disability or death, risk of severe economic and social loss, and other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time, which may result not only from my own (or my minor child’s) actions, inactions, or negligence, but also from action, inaction, or negligence of others, the condition of the premises, or the condition of any equipment used. I understand and agree that by signing this Waiver/Release of Liability, I am assuming full responsibility for all the foregoing risks and accepting full personal responsibility for any losses, costs, or damages resulting from my (or my minor child’s) participation in any activities with MAG Church.
I understand and agree that by signing this Waiver/Release of Liability, I am agreeing to release, discharge, covenant not to sue, indemnify and hold harmless MAG Church and its owners, directors, officers, agents, employees, and associated personnel from any and all liability, claims, demands, losses, injuries, damages, or costs, including attorney fees, associated with or arising from my (or my minor child’s) participation in any activities with MAG Church, which participation I hereby authorize. I understand that this Waiver/Release of Liability will be binding on me, my spouse, my heirs, my personal representatives, my assigns, my children and any guardian ad litem for said children.
I acknowledge that I have read this Waiver/Release of Liability and that I understand the words and language in it. I understand that I am giving up substantial rights by signing this Waiver/ Release of Liability and I sign below voluntarily.
