Waiver of Liability, Release, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement
For and in consideration of my registration with the Pittsburgh Urban Magnet Project (“PUMP”) and being allowed to participate in any program, event or activity sponsored by PUMP, (including but not limited to: the Pittsburgh Sports League (“PSL”) competitions, service projects, Kickball for a Cause, Steel City World Cup, Yoga in the Park, self-defense training programs, fundraising events, and corporate sporting events and tournaments, and any other event, competition or program sponsored by PUMP, each of which is hereinafter known as a “Program” and known collectively as “Programs”), I hereby forever waive, release, discharge and relinquish for myself, and my heirs, administrators, successors and assigns, any and all claims, rights, actions, suits or causes of action against PUMP, PUMP’s sponsors, other Program participants, coaches, officials and owners of the various sites of Programs (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releasees”) for personal injury, property damage, wrongful death or any other type of injury or damages arising out of my participation in Programs, and/or any activities incidental thereto, including transportation to and from PSL competitions, whenever or however they may occur or arise.
I fully understand and acknowledge that a Program may involve risks and dangers to my person including bodily injury, partial or total disability, paralysis, and death, and damages which may arise therefrom and I acknowledge and voluntarily assume all such risks and dangers in connection with my participation therein. I further understand and acknowledge that these risks and dangers may be caused by my own negligence or the negligence of others and I knowingly and voluntarily assume all such risks and dangers whether caused by my own negligence or the negligence of others. I further acknowledge that there may be risks and dangers that are not known to PUMP or myself or are not reasonably foreseeable at this time and I voluntarily assume all such risks.
I covenant and agree not to sue the Releasees, or any of them, for or on account of any injury or damages I may suffer in connection with my participation in a Program, and further agree that if any person or entity brings any claim or lawsuit for personal injury, property damage, wrongful death, subrogation or any other cause of action against Releasees related to any injury or damages I may suffer in connection with my participation in a Program, I shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Releasees from any and all such claims or causes of action by whomever or wherever made or presented.
I represent and warrant that I am in good health, physically fit and in proper physical condition to participate in Programs, and that I have had the opportunity to seek the advice of my personal physician prior to participating therein. I further represent and warrant that I am at least eighteen (18) years old; provided, however, that if this registration is for participation in a Program at a licensed site where alcoholic beverages are served, I represent and warrant that I am at least twenty-one (21) years old.
I HAVE READ THIS WAIVER OF LIABILITY, RELEASE, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM GIVING UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT. I HAVE SIGNED THIS AGREEMENT FREELY AND WITHOUT PROMISE OR INDUCEMENT EXCEPT AS SET FORTH HEREIN. THE RELEASE, WAIVER, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND INDEMNITY HEREIN ARE INTENDED TO BE AS BROAD AND INCLUSIVE AS PERMITTED BY LAW, AND TO BIND MYSELF AND MY ESTATE. IF ANY PORTION HEREOF IS HELD TO BE INVALID, I AGREE THAT THE BALANCE SHALL NOTWITHSTANDING CONTINUE IN FULL FORCE AND EFFECT. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE GOVERNED BY PENNSYLVANIA LAW, AND THE VENUE FOR ANY LITIGATION ARISING WITH RESPECT HERETO SHALL BE EXCLUSIVELY IN THE COURT OF COMMON PLEAS OF ALLEGHENY COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA.
