On my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless “Location”, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto.
