What is 2020 Vision Quest?

We lead and inspire students and professionals to reach their peak potential while providing financial support for crucial vision services.

2020 Vision Quest supports two organizations—Future In Sight, and the internationally renowned Guide Dogs for the Blind—to help ensure that life-changing services for the blind may always continue.

2020 Vision Quest calendar

2020 Quotation:

"I’ve come to believe failure is temporary if we choose a path of persistence and resiliency." - Randy Pierce

Presentations and Partnerships

"I’d pay a billion dollars to be you." - Marston School student to Randy

"Such positive response from students, teachers and parents is worth a billion to me!" - Randy

As the school year winds down, the 2020 Vision Quest calendar is packed with school presentations, helping us edge closer to an impressive 70,000 students who will have experienced the power and positivity of our educational outreach. We’re honored by and tremendously appreciative of the many schools that invite us to return each year and recommend us to new schools. And letters from students and staff — including the Marston School student above — are gifts we cherish.

This year, we’ve been able to give back to all the schools by leaving a copy of our sharp new “Climb Your Mountain” poster after each presentation. Thank you, Bank of New Hampshire, for supporting this high-impact effort!

We’re pleased to announce that Bank of New Hampshire, continuing its terrific legacy of partnership with 2020 Vision Quest and our mission, will once again be the Platinum sponsor for the ninth annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction on November 17. Tickets will go on sale June 1 and sponsorship outreach has already begun so if you’d like to join Bank of New Hampshire as a valued partner, please contact us.
