I hereby release, discharge, and covenant not to sue Special Olympics, Inc., Special Olympics Massachusetts, its respective administrators, directors, agents, officers, volunteers and employees, other participants, any sponsors, advertisers and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises on which the Activity takes place, (each considered one of the “RELEASEES” herein) from all liability, claims, demands, losses, or damages on my account caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the negligence of the “Releases” or otherwise, including negligent rescue operations; and I further agree that if, despite this release, waiver of liability, and assumption of risk I, or anyone on my and/or my minor child’s behalf, makes a claim against any of the Releases, I will indemnify, save, and hold harmless each of the Releases from any loss, liability, damage, or cost which any may incur as the result of such claim.
