Waiver, Release And Hold Harmless Agreement
In consideration of permission granted by the Marine Resources Council of East Florida (MRC) allowing me to participate in any of their programs, I (together with my parent or guardian, if I am under the age of (18) or under legal disability) represent, covenant and agree, on behalf of myself and my heirs, assigns, and any other person claiming by, under or through me, as follows:
1. I acknowledge that participating in any of these programs involves certain risks (some of which I may not fully appreciate) and that illness, disease, infection, injuries, including permanent disability, paralysis and death, property damage or other harm could occur to me and others by my own actions or inactions. I accept and voluntarily incur all risks of any illness, disease, infection, injuries, damages, or harm which arise during or result from my participation in the program, including any associated travel, regardless of whether or not caused in whole or in part by negligence or other fault of MRC, and/or its board members, affiliates, employees, volunteers, insurers, partners, or interns (“Released Parties”).
2. I waive all claims against any of the Released Parties for any injuries, damages, losses or claims, whether known and unknown, which arise during or result from my participation in the program, regardless of whether or not caused in whole or part by the negligence or other fault of any of the Released Parties. I release and forever discharge the Released Parties from all such claims.
3. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Released Parties harmless from all losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses (including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees and other litigation costs and expenses) incurred by any of the Released Parties as a result of claims or suits that I (or anyone else claiming by under or through me) may bring against any of the Released Parties to recover losses, liabilities, costs, damages, or expense which arise during or result from my participation in the program, regardless of whether or not caused in whole or part by the negligence or other fault of any of the Released Parties.
4. I have carefully read and reviewed this Waiver, Release and Hold Harmless Agreement. I understand fully and execute it voluntarily.
