The terms of this release shall serve as a release and assumption of risk for myself, my child, heirs, executives, administrators, and for all of my family members.
Declaration of Fitness Agreement: I understand, agree, and acknowledge that some activities in this program may be of a hazardous nature and/or include physical and/or strenuous activity. I hereby assume all risk of such activities. Understanding this, I state to the best of my knowledge that I or my child listed on this form have no medical, physical, mental, or emotional health conditions which would hinder my or my child’s active participation in the program listed on this form.
Furthermore, I hereby declare that I am physically fit and that I have no physical or mental condition(s) that should preclude me from participating in my chosen activity, that I am not participating against medical advice or treatment and that I have not been diagnosed by a registered doctor as having a terminal illness. I further declare that in the event that I feel ill or unwell, have any physical complaints whatsoever or if an injury is sustained of any kind during the course of hiking activities, I will notify the guide immediately and before moving away from the immediate vicinity.
In the case of an emergency in which I am not able to give permission for medical treatment and my designated emergency contact cannot be reached, I authorize the staff or agents of Ch8sing Waterfalls to obtain whatever medical treatment is deemed necessary for my or my child’s welfare. In the case of my child, this authorization is given pursuant to the provisions of the laws of my state. I further understand and agree that I will be financially responsible for all charges and fees incurred in the rendering of said emergency treatment, regardless of whether my medical insurance would cover such charges and fees.
PHOTO RELEASE: I hereby grant Ch8sing Waterfalls permission to use my likeness in a photograph, video, or other digital media (photo) in any and all of its publications, including web-based publications, without payment or other consideration. Should I object to a photo of me being posted or shared by another member, I understand that I need to contact that member directly and ask him/her to remove or take down the image as Ch8sing Waterfalls is not involved or responsible for that situation.
