I hereby waive any right that I may have to inspect or approve any finished product or any advertising copy that may be used in connection therewith or the use to which it is applied. I hereby warrant that I have the right to make this release and that my granting this release and the rights conveyed thereby will not infringe upon rights of any third party.

I also understand that there may be risks involved that are not known to me or to the Park, Cristian Rivera Foundation, organizers and/or volunteers (if any), and may not be foreseen or reasonably foreseeable by any of us at this time or at the time of the activities in which I may participate.
I assume all of the foregoing risks including the risk of any negligence by other participants or by any of Van Cortlandt Park, Cristian Rivera Foundation, organizers or volunteers of the Event and their respective owners, partners, directors, officers, employees or agents, and the risk of injury caused by the condition of any property, facilities or equipment used during the Event, and accept personal responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, dismemberment and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability or expense, of any kind or nature, that I or my property may suffer arising out of or in connection with the Event or my participation therein or attendance thereat.
