______ I understand that I ____________________________________ (print name here), "PARTICIPANT", understand that hiking, climbing, camping and being outdoors are HAZARDOUS
activities and have inherent risks (specifically risk of loss, damage, injury, and/or death). I am fully aware that any such activities I undertake before, during, or after a CLIMBING FOR CHRIST event are by my own choice and in no way are supervised or approved by CLIMBING FOR CHRIST in any way. I further agree that I am responsible for any such activities and any loss or injury arising from these activities.
______ In consideration of participating in a CLIMBING FOR CHRIST event, outreach, conference, meeting or meals, etc. (“activity”), I assume all risks which may be associated with and/or result from my involvement in such activity and hereby voluntarily release and indemnify CLIMBING FOR CHRIST and all of their directors, officers, agents, area contacts, staff, employees, volunteers, and family members from any and all liability, claims, demands, actions and causes of actions whatsoever arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury (including death) that I may suffer while participating in a CLIMBING FOR CHRIST event.
______ I authorize CLIMBING FOR CHRIST outreach attendees, officers, directors, volunteers/agents to call for medical care, or transport me to a medical care facility or hospital, if in the opinion of such personnel, medical attention is needed for me.

Further, I agree to pay all costs associated with such medical care and related transportation, and shall indemnify and hold harmless CLIMBING FOR CHRIST and its respective officers, directors, agents, etc. from any and all costs incurred of such medical care or transport.
______ This release shall be binding on the assignees, subrogates, distributees, heirs, next of kin, executors, and administrators and may be pled by CLIMBING FOR CHRIST as a complete bar and defense to any claim, demand, action, or cause of action brought on my behalf. This release shall
be effective even though said loss, damage or injury results, or has resulted, from the negligence, wrongful acts, omissions, breach of warranty, or strict tort liability of CLIMBING FOR CHRIST.
In the event any section of this release is found to be unenforceable, the remaining terms shall be enforceable. This release shall be binding to the fullest extent permitted by law.
