The Equinox Gym in Scarsdale hold special meaning for Thru My Eyes because of one of its former members, Dede Frontera. In 2010, Dede was losing her battle to breast cancer. She expressed the desire to leave video messages for her young daughter but could not find an organization that could provide those charitable services.
The mission of our organization stems from Dede’s wish: to help young parents with life-threatening illnesses create free clinically guided video legacies for their children and loved ones in the privacy of their own homes. Our service relies entirely on charitable donations, grants and fundraisers, like today’s fundraiser at the gym. 100% of the money donated will go towards helping parents create these videos.

The Equinox gym has been generous enough to hold not only our first fundraiser but also today’s event as well. We thank all of Staff and Members of the Equinox Gym for their support!
