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 Quotation:

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do." - Rev. Edward Hale

Over the Edge

Recently, Randy rappelled down Manchester’s 24-story Brady Sullivan Tower as part of the Live United Over the Edge 2018 event. Similarly, our work at 2020 Vision Quest is going over the edge with several exciting milestones and happenings.

Last year went over the top in several ways. We wrapped up the school year with a total 71,000 students reached by our presentations, and we’re already filling next year’s schedule. And 2020 Vision Quest proudly donated more than $98,000 to the charities we support that provide essential visual impairment training and services to thousands of people experiencing sight loss.

Randy just finished a draft of the book he’s been writing — a major milestone that represents significant effort on his part — and now leaps into editing and revising it in anticipation of giving guests at the 9th annual Peak Potential dinner the first peek. That signature event, returning to Nashua’s Courtyard by Marriott this year on November 17, is more than halfway to a sellout, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to join us.

And finally, we’re on the edge of a new look! Watch this space for the launch of a new website in the coming month. The redesign will be responsive to phones and tablets and will update our mission.

Amidst all this work and jumping off buildings, Autumn promises some summer fun. She’s taking Tracy and Randy for a long-overdue excursion to Scotland. Stay tuned for reports of that adventure before the summer is over!
