ADVENTURES FOR WOMEN
Waiver of Liability and Assumption of Risk
Although Adventures for Women, its Trustees, hike leaders and event coordinators have taken reasonable steps to advise you of appropriate equipment, provide you with training, and provide skilled guides so you can enjoy wilderness hiking, kayaking , canoeing, biking and cross country skiing, we wish to remind you that these activities are not without risk. Certain risks cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of these activities. The same elements that contribute to the unique character of these activities can cause loss or damage to your equipment, or accidental injury, illness or, in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death. The following are some but not all of those risks:
- Accidental injury due to boat/canoe/kayak capsizing.
- Accidental injury due to slips and falls.
- Accidental injury and/or property damage due to varied terrain and possible extremes in the weather.
I, the participant, am aware that Adventures for Women activities entail risks of personal injury, property damage, and death to myself. I understand that the description of these risks is not complete. I certify that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in these activities and agree to assume responsibility for the risks, known and unknown, to myself (and my minor children, if participating). My participation is voluntary and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.I further agree that if at any time I believe conditions to be unsafe, I will immediately discontinue further participation.
I hereby release the trustees, officers, members, volunteers, hike leaders and event coordinators, other participants, and owners/lessors of premises on which activities take place from all liability and claims on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part for any negligence in the administration of first aid/medical assistance, rescue operations or “good samaritan” efforts made by any of those mentioned above. This is binding on my heirs and me.
