B.  Accordingly, in consideration of my inclusion in the Program, I hereby voluntarily release and forever discharge the Organization, and its agents, employees, officers, shareholders, members, managers, and directors, from any and all liabilities, claims, debts, demands, suits, actions, causes of action, or rights of action, which I or my heirs, assigns, legal or personal representatives, or estate can, shall, or may ever have, now or in the future, for, by reason of, or based upon any injury, death, illness, disease, or damage to or loss or theft of property arising out of, directly or indirectly, or in any way connected with or related to the Program, whether or not caused by any negligent acts or omissions of the Organization.

Entire Agreement I understand that this is the entire agreement between myself and the Organization related to this subject matter and that it cannot be modified or changed in any way by any representations or statements by any employee or agent of the Organization or by me, except in writing signed by both parties.
