I, the undersigned, state that I wish to participate in the “Event” and that my participation is wholly voluntary. In consideration of the opportunity to participate, I hereby state: 1. I understand that certain risks, both known and unforeseen, are inherent in an “Event” of this type and that I fully accept those risks. These risks may include, but are not limited to, such things as lifting of heavy objects, strains, sprains, cuts, bruises and broken bones, incidents related to my own medical condition, and other physical, mental, and emotional injury. 2. I understand and agree that my participating in the “Event” is being done on my own personal time and is not subject to the Worker’s Compensation Laws of the State of Indiana. 3. I understand and agree that Indiana University does not provide insurance to cover medical expenses for injuries that may be sustained by my voluntary participation in the “Event”, or for damage to my personal property, and that Indiana University strongly recommends that I carry my own health, medical and property insurance for purposes of potential losses related to my voluntary participation in this Program. 4. I release and fully discharge The Trustees of Indiana University, its officers, agents and employees, from any and all liability in connection with my participation in the “Event”, for or on account of any injury to or illness of my person or death, or for or on account of any loss or damage to any personal property or effects owned by me.
