I hereby give my express permission as parent/legal guardian of the child named above to participate in the Activities selected above and described on the website at www.stimothys.org/lifeteen. In consideration of the opportunity for my Child to participate in the Activity selected I knowingly and voluntarily on behalf of myself and my Child do hereby agree to forever RELEASE, HOLD HARMLESS, AND INDEMNIFY the Parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore and each of its affiliate organizations, agents, governing board, departments, employees, officers, directors, volunteers, officials, representatives, agents, insurers, students, and other participants in the Activities (collectively, the “Archdiocese of Baltimore”) to the fullest extent permitted by law from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action, including claims of negligence, arising out of or relating to any loss, damage, or injury (including illness or death) sustained in connection with or arising out of my participation in the Activities, including any and all actions taken by the Parish or the Archdiocese of Baltimore pursuant to this Permission & Release Agreement.
By my signature below, I understand and acknowledge that my Child’s participation in the Activities may involve risk of minor or serious injury, including illness, permanent disability, death, and/or economic losses that may result from my Child’s actions or inactions, the actions or inactions of others, and the inherent risks of the Activities, including travel to and from the Activities. I further understand and acknowledge that the Activities may involve outdoor activities, including but not limited to exposure to sun and other elements, and changing environmental conditions due to inclement weather, lightning, wind, or temperature, serving food, washing dishes, engaging with the public. I fully understand, appreciate, and hereby assume all such known and unknown dangers and risks related to my Child’s participation on behalf of my Child and I voluntarily elect to allow my Child to participate in the Activities. I affirm that I have had the opportunity to ask questions and have received all information about the Activities I feel necessary to assume the risks associated with the Activities.
I understand that my Child’s participation in the Activities may require a minimum level of fitness for safe participation, and the Parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore do not screen, medically or otherwise, individuals that participate in the Activities. I acknowledge that it is my sole responsibility to make certain that my Child is physically fit and healthy enough to participate in the Activities. I understand that my Child’s participation in the Activities may also result in a greater risk of exposure to or contraction of COVID-19. By allowing my Child to participate in the Activities, I confirm that my Child does not have an elevated temperature, has not tested positive for COVID-19, has not been in direct contact in the last 14 days with someone infected with COVID-19, and has not otherwise exhibited any symptoms related to COVID-19 as identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In the case of a health emergency or need of urgent healthcare, after a reasonable effort has been made to contact me and any below-named emergency contact(s) (or if the urgency of the circumstances does not allow for an attempt to contact me or any below-named emergency contact(s)), I authorize and consent to any medical care deemed necessary for my Child’s health and safety during the Activities. If my child is not covered by hospitalization and medical insurance, I assume responsibility for the cost of hospitalization and medical care for my child.
If any provision or provisions of this Release Agreement are determined to be invalid or unenforceable, either in whole or in part, the parties agree that the invalid or unenforceable provision will be modified to the minimum extent necessary to render it valid and enforceable, so that the rights and obligations of the parties to this Release Agreement are preserved to the fullest extent permitted by law.
