Canadian Cancer Society - Relay for Life
Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings you and your community together to celebrate life and fight cancer. Relay has a festival-like atmosphere that your family, friends and co-workers can enjoy regardless of age or fitness level! This particular event was hosted at the Richmond Olympic Oval, Vancouver.
Vancouver Second Mile Society - Seniors Out Reach
Vancouver Second Mile Society (VSMS) was established in 1958 by Dr. Wallace Wilson, a Health Department official from the City of Vancouver. The Society was created in response to concerns that the City’s redevelopment in the downtown east-side did not include a community centre since the closure of the original Carnegie Library in 1958.
This was an outing coordinated by the staff of VSMS. Dustin's role was to oversee and take care of the seniors while photographing them during the trip. Shown here is a small selection of images. The rest of the personal portraits were printed for for their keep sake.
