PLEASE READ THIS RELEASE AND WAIVER CAREFULLY AND IN ITS ENTIRETY. THIS RELEASE AND WAIVER AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS AND IS LEGALLY BINDING. BY SIGNING THIS RELEASE AND WAIVER, YOU ARE RELEASING NORTHWEST ASSOCIATION FOR BLIND ATHLETES (“NWABA”) FROM ALL LIABILITY AND FOREVER GIVING UP ANY CLAIMS THEREFOR.
Assumption of Risk
I acknowledge and agree that any use of NWABA facilities, services, equipment, and premises (“Facilities”) and any participation in NWABA programs and activities, including virtual programs and activities (“Programs”), comes with inherent risks including, but in no way limited to: (1) moderate and severe personal injury, (2) property damage, (3) disability, (4) death, and (5) sickness or disease.
I voluntarily accept and assume full responsibility for these risks as well as any and all other risks of the use of Facilities and participation in Programs.

Consultation with Medical Provider
YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE BEGINNING ANY TYPE OF EXERCISE OR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY.
I understand NWABA recommends that I consult with a physician before commencing in the participation of any Programs. If I have chosen not to consult a physician prior to participating, I fully accept the risks involved in this decision. At no time has a physician or any other person advised me that I should not participate in physical activity. I affirm that, to the best of my knowledge, I am in good physical condition and do not suffer from any condition that would prevent or limit my participation in the Programs. I acknowledge that if my health changes, it is my responsibility to inform NWABA of any conditions or changes in my health, now and ongoing, which might affect my ability to participate safely and with minimal risk of injury.
