5. If You Choose to Engage in a Scare Your Soul Challenge:

The Scare Your Soul Challenges (the “Challenges”) are about pushing your comfort zone, not your SAFETY zone. Any challenges on the website, in the Scare Your Soul book, or in other SYS materials are voluntary activities. SYS, its owners, employees, assigns, affiliates, volunteers, and others acting on their behalf have no control over your actions. You should always use common sense and care and not engage in activities beyond your physical and other capabilities. Do not attempt anything that would hurt yourself or others, physically or in any other way. If you choose to engage in a Challenge, that is solely your responsibility, you do so willingly, and with the understanding that SYS disclaims all liability for all actions. 

Should you participate in any Scare Your Soul Challenge, you hereby RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE, AND COVENANT NOT TO SUE SYS for any liability, claim, and/or cause of action arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, emotional distress, bodily injury, death, economic loss or property damage, that may be sustained, or to any property belonging to me that occurs as a result of participation in a Challenge.  You agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS SYS whether injury or damages is caused by my negligence, the negligence of SYS or the negligence of any third party from any and all claims, losses, damages, costs, demands, causes of action, and legal liability including court costs and attorney’s fees, whether the same be known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, that may be incurred due to participation in a Challenge. You acknowledge and expressly agree that this provision is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by law. If any one or more of the provisions of this waiver is held to be invalid, unenforceable, or against public policy, the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect.

If you have any questions about any of the SYS policies or terms, e-mail us at
