CHILD MEDICAL RELEASE FORM

In consideration for allowing the student named above (the “child”) to participate in any of the programs of Christ the Savior Lutheran Church, Inc., an Indiana nonprofit corporation (“CTS”), I/we expressly give CTS, its members, pastors, ministerial staff, officers, council members, agents, employees, and volunteers (hereinafter collectively or individually the “Church”) permission to provide first aid, perform any life-saving procedures, and seek whatever medical attention, treatment, or diagnosis is deemed necessary for the child while the child is participating in any Church program, activity, or event or while the child is on Church property. I/we release the Church and hold the Church harmless from any liability or responsibility for any damage or personal injury to the child, including death, relating to or arising in any way out of the efforts of the Church to provide the child first aid or life-saving procedures or in seeking medical attention to, for, or on behalf of the child, whether such efforts were performed negligently or not performed at all. I/we the undersigned are either a parent of or have legal custody of the child. In the event that the child is injured, ill, or otherwise requires the attention or treatment of a physician or other licensed health professional, I/we consent to any reasonable medical treatment to the child as deemed necessary by such licensed physician or other qualified, licensed health professional. I/we agree to release and hold the Church harmless from any claims, loss, liability, damage, or personal injury, including death, arising from or relating to the Church’s actions in arranging any such medical treatment or recommending any such physician or health professional. I/We also acknowledge that I/we will be ultimately responsible for the cost of any medical care for the child and hold the Church harmless of any such cost or expense. Further, I/we affirm that the health insurance information provided on this form is accurate at this date and will, to the best of my/our knowledge, remain in force for the child. I/we also agree to bring the child home at my/our own expense should the child become ill or if deemed necessary by the Church.

GENERAL RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS

I/We understand that there are inherent risks involved in any program, activity, or event, including but not limited to property damage, personal injury, or death. In consideration allowing the child to participate in any of the programs of the Church, I/we waive and relinquish all claims that I/we may have personally or on behalf of the child against Church, for death, illness, injuries or damages, personal or property, as a result of participating in any program, activity, or event of the Church or conducted at Church property. As consideration for the child being permitted to participate in any program, activity, or event of the Church or on Church property, I/we hereby agree that neither I/we, nor any of my/our heirs, assigns, personal or legal representatives, or family members will bring suit or make a claim for death, illness, injuries, or damages, personal or property, resulting from or relating to the negligence (but not the willful misconduct) of the Church. I/we hereby release the Church from and against any and all liability arising out of, relating to, or in any way connected with, the child’s participation in any program, activity, or event of the Church or on Church property, including any liability for negligence (but not willful misconduct) of the Church. I further agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Church harmless from any and all claims resulting from injuries – including death, illness, damages, property damage, or loss – sustained by the child arising out of, connected with, or relating in any way with any program, activity, or event of the Church or on Church proper.
