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—NH Association for the Blind, and the internationally renowned Guiding Eyes for the Blind—to help ensure that life-changing services for the blind may always continue.

Randy, Autumn (with tongue out) and Tracy sit near the summit of Mt. Piper on what appears almost to be a couch made of stone on a sunny summer day.

HEROES of SUMMER

Oberto did an amazing job featuring Randy completing a Tough Mudder recently as part of their Heroes of Summer series.

You have to see this video!

We are definitely still honoring Quinn with Miles4Quinn - the link is below.

Lounging for the Summer?

Some of us from 2020 Vision Quest may look like we’re lounging in the above photograph--taken atop Mt. Piper as the summer began. In actuality the hiking involved to get to that location was only a very small part of the training and preparation for Mt. Kilimanjaro ahead. Several members of the 2020 Vision Quest team will be undertaking the summit attempt of the world’s tallest standalone mountain in September.

You’ve hopefully had a chance to watch Randy’s recently released TEDx talk already, but are you aware that a new presentation lies ahead at TEDx-Springfield (MA), scheduled for the week after Randy and team return from Africa?

Randy and Tracy have also stepped up to become president and secretary of their Hudson NH Lions Club starting July 1st, and the 2020 Vision Quest team has launched their annual strategic planning--which helps ensure that we continue to reach for our peak potential in our charity fundraising efforts.

While school is out for the summer, camp presentations are a high priority, and we’re laying the groundwork for a new season of corporate presentations and school presentations--the foundation of our efforts.
