Authorization for the Release of Medical Information

Program Registration Forms: Waiver and Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement Runner Sign Up Authorization for the Release of Medical Information Participant Guide

In order for a student to participate in the We Run Orange County’s Kids (WeROCK) marathon training program, he/she must have a current Physical Screening & Physician Authorization Form (the Form) on file in the WeROCK office. The Form must include approval from a licensed physician for the student to participate in the program and must indicate that the physician completed a physical examination of the student within the most recent 30 days. The deadline for submitting the Form to the WeROCK office is November 10, 2017. Students without the Form on file as of this date will not be allowed to continue with the program for the remainder of the 2017-2018 season.

In order for the Physical Screening & Physician Authorization Form to be acceptable, the Form must be completed, in its entirety, by the parent/guardian and by the licensed physician, and must include the date of the examination, the physician’s signature, and a stamp from the doctor’s office or clinic where the examination was completed.

WeROCK also strongly recommends that all participants have an EKG test completed prior to participation in the marathon training program. Completion of an EKG will be left to the decision of the parent/guardian of the participant, and to the participant’s licensed physician, with the physician advising the parent/guardian on the risks of participating in the program without an EKG being completed.

  • I hereby authorize medical information about the above named student to be released to We Run Orange County’s Kids (WeROCK) and to be retained in their offices as part of their permanent records. I understand that this medical information is to be released to WeROCK for the purpose of determining that the student is physically fit and able to participate in the WeROCK marathon training program, and that WeROCK will keep the information confidential. I also authorize any licensed physicians affiliated with WeROCK to review the Form as part of the determination process.
