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’s running a marathon, but the rest of us can SPRINT!

In just one week, Randy will stride toward the finish line of his third consecutive Boston Marathon. Because 26.2 miles is a distance few of us will run, we’ve created a fun and important participatory challenge we’re calling the Peak Potential Sprint.

Here’s how it works: Starting April 10, we will open ticket sales for our 8th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction . Our ambitious - maybe you’d call it insane - goal? We want to sell one table for every mile of the historic 26.2 mile route by the time Randy crosses the finish line (about 3:15 p.m.) on Marathon Monday, April 17.

We’re offering the eight-person tables for the best price of $500. Plus, anyone who purchases a table can send photos and messages of encouragement to Randy and his guides, Rebecca Dorr and Tom Cassetty, as they make their way from Hopkinton to Boston. If you’re considering attending Peak Potential, help us sprint to the finish line!

Take me to the Peak Potential Table Sprint Challenge!

Speaking of rising to the challenge, Bank of New Hampshire is going the distance with us not just for the Boston Marathon but as our Platinum Sponsor for the 8th Annual Peak Potential Dinner. We are proud of their partnership in supporting our educational outreach to schools throughout New England.
