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 Guiding Eyes for the Blind—to help ensure that life-changing services for the blind may always continue.

"Whether you think you can--or think you can't--you're probably right." Henry Ford

From running to walking … without slowing down

While the past few months have been all about running — the 26.2 miles of the Boston Marathon and the training leading up to it, the Peak Potential table sprint — we’d like to encourage you to walk … in Randy’s shoes.

Sure, they literally (and figuratively) would be far too big for most of us, as they are for Autumn here. But joining the 2020 Vision Quest team for Future in Sight’s June 3 Walk for Sight offers a great opportunity to raise public awareness of the issues of blindness and raise money for this important organization, one the beneficiaries of our charity.

Those who prefer a brisker pace can join Randy and 2020 Vision Quest in Nashua’s Gate City Marathon May 21. With a relay team of five guides, Randy plans to qualify for the 2018 Boston Marathon, a goal he missed by just three minutes at this year’s Boston. Cheer him on by running a marathon, a half, as part of a relay team, or by volunteering.

Finally, as we dash toward the end of the school year, help spread the word to any educators about booking Randy and Autumn for a presentation.
