In consideration of being allowed to participate, individuals release Jasmine Guadalupe, The Hood Hikers, and its organizers, executive, webmasters, email senders and members from all liability in respect of any personal injury suffered, any damage or loss of personal property, which may arise out of participation in any of their hiking or outdoor activities.
