Women’s Brain Health Initiative’s Stand Ahead® Challenge (“SA”) is a voluntary activity undertaken to help accomplish the charitable purposes of Women’s Brain Health Initiative (“WBHI”) by raising awareness of (and funds for) women’s brain health research and the education programs of WBHI. As with any activity, there is a risk of injury (or even death) from participating in, or acting as a spectator to, the SA. Participants in and spectators to the SA are advised to carefully consider any health issues, environmental/location concerns, and other factors and/or unforeseen hazards that might adversely impact the ability to undertake the SA safely.
Individuals participating in the SA (each a “Participant”) do so at their own election and at their own risk, and by their participation agree (on their own behalf and on behalf of anyone else who might make a claim in their place) to waive, release, and discharge WBHI, and to indemnify, hold harmless, and agree not to sue WBHI (and its affiliates and representatives) for any loss, liability, cost, damages (including reasonable solicitor’s fees), and/or claims that might arise from or in relation to their participation in the SA, whether due to negligence or otherwise. Participants are encouraged to consult their respective health care providers with any questions regarding how the SA might affect their health, and any Participants under the age of 18 should obtain permission from a parent/guardian. WBHI (and its affiliates and representatives) is not responsible, and specifically disclaims responsibility, for any loss, injury, liability, cost, damages, and/or claims arising from or in relation to the SA.
WBHI has no control over the actions of Participants or spectators to any SA, the location in which a SA is undertaken, or the method by which the SA is conducted. Participants or spectators that require first aid and/or other medical treatment or related services in relation to an injury or illness that arises in connection with participation in the SA remain solely and exclusively responsible for (and all liability or claims arising out of or in relation to) such treatment and/or services.
