I made it to the Relay For Life in Dartmouth NS on Friday night in time to see Amanda enter the Survivors' Victory Lap that starts the event. I recorded the survivors leaving the start line, then this 12-year-old performer from Nova Scotia began singing. Makayla Lynn's song "Fighter" captured my imagination and got stuck in my head. I kept shooting as she kept singing and I imagined putting a video together.
A few days later, here it is. In honour of Amanda and Gordon and all the other people who came out that night to walk all night.
Celebrate. Remember. Fight back.
