I fully understand that the Event and any related activities involves risks of serious bodily injury, including viral infections, bacterial infections and other communicable diseases and illnesses, permanent disability, paralysis and death, which may be caused by my own actions or inactions, those of others participating in the Event, the conditions in which the Event takes place, or the negligence of the "Releasees" named below. I further understand that there may be other risks either not known to me or not readily foreseeable at this time. I fully accept and assume all such risks described herein and all responsibility for any losses, costs, and damages that I and/or my minor child incur as a result of my and/or my minor child's participation in the Event and any related activities.
I hereby release, discharge, and covenant not to sue Special Olympics Northern California, Inc., Special Olympics, Inc., their respective administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers, and employees, any other participating entities, sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, any other owners and/or lessors of any public or private property on which any of the Event activities take place (each considered one of the "Releasees" named herein), from all liability, claims, demands, losses or damages on my and/or my minor child’s account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the Releasees or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk, I, or anyone on my and/or my minor child's behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releasees, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the Releasees from any loss, liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as the result of such claim.
I hereby consent to receive any medical treatment which may be deemed advisable for me in the event of injury and/or illness during the Event and any related activities.

In addition, I hereby authorize any of the Releasees, and/or their agents, to photograph, film, tape, or otherwise create audio and/or video recordings, still images and/or textual descriptions of me, and to use the same for any legitimate purpose, as well as to use my name and biographical information in connection therewith, without compensation or permission.
