RELEASE AND WAIVER - I hereby release and forever discharge and hold harmless the Young Leadership Council (hereinafter "YLC") and its successors and assigns from any and all liability, claims and demands of whatever kind or nature, either in law or in equity, which arise or may hereafter arise from volunteer's activities with YLC. I understand that this Release discharges YLC from any liability or claim that I may have against YLC with respect to any bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death or property damage that may result from my activities with YLC, whether caused by the negligence of YLC or its officers, directors, employees or agents or otherwise. I understand that YLC does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide financial assistance or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health or disability insurance in the event of injury or illness to myself or others.
2. MEDICAL TREATMENT - I hereby release and forever discharge YLC from any claim whatsoever which arises or may hereafter arise on account of any first aid, treatment or service rendered in connection with my activities with YLC or with the decision by any representative or agent of YLC to exercise the power to consent to medical or dental treatment.
