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.

In this Kilimanjaro summit sunrise image, the sun is just over the horizon as the team sat just past Stella Point.  The sun is a brilliant orange and yellow on the left hand side of the photo, largely obscuring a smaller peak that was behind them as they climbed. Above the horizon is a thin orange line, then shades of blue from light to dark.  Below is some deep lavender, down to glacier, then martian red soil.

A Brand New Day—Kilimanjaro and Beyond!

The 11 Kilimanjaro team members have all returned to their homes in the U.S., and have quickly stepped back into their various family and work roles, but it could easily take weeks or longer for all of their amazing experiences to fully sink in. Indeed some experiences can be so powerful—so moving—that they can open one up to the light of a new day. (Above image, of 9/26 sunrise on the Kilimanjaro summit, courtesy of Jose Acevedo.)

For this week’s blog post, Randy and Tracy have taken a unique approach and they offer us a tag-team, husband-wife Q & A that is at once both a fun read and also extremely revealing of key aspects of what they and their team encountered in Tanzania.

Check out the blog post dated October 4th for Randy’s and Tracy’s insider reflections on such topics as: 1/ the Day 2 challenges—most notably the footing for Randy, with scrambles and some daunting drop-offs; 2/ the “summit day” challenges and emotions for all; drama at the Barranco Wall and the “Kissing Wall;” 3/ special moments of emotional bonding for the team; 4/ the frequent huge challenges of fatigue, sleeplessness, altitude sickness, nutritional deficits, etc., 5/ the thrills of the Serengeti safari, 6/ the awesome support of the porters and guides . . . and more!

Coming Up this Week:

On Wednesday morning the 7th, at approximately 9:30 am, Randy will be interviewed on-air as part of the "Gregg and the Morning Buzz" radio show on Portsmouth, NH-based WHEB, at 100.3 on the FM dial.

This coming Friday, October 9th, Randy delivers another major TEDx presentation in Springfield MA (video-recorded and viewable at a later date). And yes, the theme for the Springfield TEDx sessions—coming less than a week after his return from Tanzania—is “A Brand New Day!” Randy’s own presentation for Friday is titled “Transition Trauma and Social Risk Management.”
