I further agree that if, despite this release and waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, I, or anyone on my behalf, makes a claim against one of the Releasees as a result of my involvement in the Contest, I will INDEMNIFY, SAVE, and HOLD HARMLESS each of the Releasees from any expenses, attorney’s fees, loss, liability, damage or cost which any of the Releasees may incur as a result of such demand.
