I understand and acknowledge that this Release discharges WBHSFCF from any liability or claim that I may have against WBHSFCF with respect to bodily injury, personal injury, illness, death, or property damage that may result from the services I provide to WBHSFCF or occurring while I am providing volunteer services.
2. Insurance: Further I understand that WBHSFCF does not assume any responsibility for or obligation to provide me with financial or other assistance, including but not limited to medical, health, or disability benefits or insurance.
