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.

Walk in My Shoes!

Just as Autumn appears to be interested in trying a walk in Randy’s shoes, might you be interested in trying something similar? Whether that’s a Yes or a No, the New Hampshire Association for the Blind’s (NHAB’s) 13th Annual Walk for Sight is Saturday June 4th in Concord NH. We’d love to have you join the 2020 Vision Quest team, and/or donate to the cause (which will help support both NHAB and 2020 Vision Quest). Also, check out Randy’s recent blog post about what “Walk in My Shoes” means and how you could participate in that way.

The very next day June 5th, the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation is hosting a “Dinner in the Dark” fundraising event in Hudson. Tickets are still available…open to the public! For more information and tickets.

Two big events on June 9th: 1/ Randy will run in the annual “Hollis NH Fast 5K” race—the fastest 5K race course in New England. And . . . 2/ won’t mention any names here, but as the rumor goes, Randy himself will turn the big five-zero (50) on that day! What’s that you say? No gift acquired for Randy yet? What better way to honor Randy and this milestone than to contribute to 2020 Vision Quest or to support the 7th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Charity Auction?

The 2015-2016 school year is winding down…but a couple of months ago we hit another very important “50-related milestone.” We proudly reached the 50,000-student mark (and still climbing) for school students who have attended a Randy presentation, benefiting from the 2020 cornerstone program of school visits to deliver the messages of goal-setting and everyone’s power to reach their own unique version of peak potential!

Lastly, we’re nearing the June 3rd anniversary of NHPTV winning the Emmy for its “Windows to the Wild” episode, “Hiking in the Dark,” featuring Randy and Quinn hiking Mt. Willard with popular host Willem Lange back in 2013. You can also see the entire 27-minute show, which first aired on 2/5/14, here, and his new blog post on that experience, here.
