Randy and Autumn amidst the heavy snow banks pose with the traditional "we want your help" pointing gesture.

“We want YOU to help us with our goal!”

I am attempting to give you all a little notice as I ask you to consider helping me reach for a daunting goal.

On Monday, April 10, I’ll release a blog with some exciting news about the  event sponsor for our signature event, Peak Potential Dinner & Auction held every November. In celebration of that announcement and my week of preparation leading up to the Boston Marathon on April 17 (Patriots Day of course!), we will be kicking off the ticket sales for our November 18 event on that day as well.

It is the earliest we’ve begun sales for our event and the timing is key to my stretch goal. While we sell tickets individually, in pairs, and by tables of 8, the most common purchase and best value is the table sale.

What is my goal? To sell 1 table for each mile of the historic 26.2-mile course of the Boston Marathon which I’ll be running during that week. Tracy and I always immediately purchase a table of our own so I’ve got the first mile covered and several family and friends have suggested a few more miles along the route are likely secured as well. Whether I know in advance of the race or catch the mile by update tributes and acknowledgements we’ll send out in appreciation, I will get some significant motivation from all the support which arrives from the various table and ticket purchases.

People having fun at tables at the Peak Potential 2016For that one week (April 10-17), we will offer the lowest table price, $500 for the table of 8 guests. As of April 18, the price will increase to $600/table until June 18. After June 18, the price will increase to $700/table.

Your choice to attend our event would benefit our worthy mission a great deal. Our venue holds 30 tables very comfortably and thus 26 tables at this point will effectively assure us a sell-out at the very start of our outreach. It would allow us to work on obtaining sponsorships and donations to help make the event the most successful yet.

Already in our 8th annual event our success has continued to strengthen and grow fantastically thanks to all of your support. This is why I feel so certain it is worth asking you all to consider joining into the stretch goal now and be preparing for that April 10 opportunity.

Jose and Randy with their hands up running the Marathon.Now, we’re calling this a stretch goal because I do absolutely understand how high I’m setting this goal. When I run a marathon, I take the lesson of my friend Greg Hallerman to set three goals for myself each time: the stretch goal which is hard to reach but incredibly rewarding, the secondary goal, and the comfort goal.

You already know my stretch goal; my secondary goal would be to have 26 distinct purchases even if they were not all tables because it’s still an overwhelming support at this early juncture. My comfort goal is that when April 10 arrives and we make the announcement officially launching this year’s Peak Potential website, many of you will help us share it and inform us you are coming even if you are unable to purchase tickets at that time.

So as I run Boston this year, I have a few goals in mind. I hope to run it under 4 hours once again and I hope to learn that our Peak Potential Celebration on November 18 is matching my efforts stride for stride and mile by mile – perhaps one table at a time as we close in on our goals together.

The Peak Potential Team thanks you for your support!

The Peak Potential Team thanks you for your support!

“And you were all there.”

That’s what Randy said on Saturday night during his remarks at 2020 Vision Quest’s 7th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Charity Auction. He ran through the history of this amazing event–from its humble beginnings in 2010 with 65 people in the Manchester Derryfield Country Club, to last night when we packed 200+ into our massive ballroom in the Courtyard Marriott in Nashua. He told how, in our first year, we gave $2,020 each to Guiding Eyes for the Blind and New Hampshire Association for the Blind, and that now, 6 years later, we’ve been able to give $20,000 to each association each year for the last few years.

“And you were all there.”

In a lively ballroom full of friends and supporters, Randy shared some of his own journey. He shared triumphs: climbing all 48 4,000-foot peaks in a single winter, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, running two Boston Marathons. He also shared sorrows and hardships: the death of his father on the morning of the 2012 Peak Potential, the death of his beloved Guide Dog Quinn a little over a year later, and a resurgence of his mysterious medical condition over the last year that caused frequent blackout episodes. Randy took his audience through his personal highs and lows of the last few years, and came back to this statement:

“And you were all there.”

Both this event and 2020 Vision Quest have grown by leaps and bounds every year. At Peak Potential 2016, with our new expanded space and biggest auction yet, we are expected to have raised more money than any Peak Potential so far. 2020 Vision Quest has reached a total of 53,000 children in our school presentations, 10,000 just this year. We’ve now created the “2020 Visionary” award to honor those who embody the principles of 2020 Vision Quest, and presented it to our inaugural recipient Dr. John Dagianis. Dr. Dagianis’s quick diagnosis of Randy’s condition over a decade ago helped Randy save partial sight at the time, and he is also widely known for his skill, compassion, and humanitarianism.

But what keeps breathing life into our mission is the joy, friendship, and support of our community. Year after year, both at Peak Potential and in between, our community comes together to support us and each other. It’s because of you that we can keep making the difference that is so important to make.

Last night, Michelle Croteau, a teacher at the Adeline C. Marston School in Hampton, NH, gave a presentation about how important our mission was to her students. She said that 2020 Vision Quest shows that “turning a vision into a reality is possible if you just believe in yourself.”

Our mission to encourage people to achieve their dreams and to financially give back to Guiding Eyes and NHAB wouldn’t be possible without you. By believing in us and coming back, year after year, you’ve helped us turn the vision of this event and our charity into reality. Together, we’ve built something that’s amazing and meaningful. Together, we’ve helped make a difference to so many people who need it.

“And you were all there.”

So thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We are humbled and honored by your presence and your support. We hope you’ll keep on coming! We can’t do it without you.

Your Table is Ready! Join us for Peak Potential 2016.

A leader’s job is not to do the work for others, it’s to help others figure out how to do it themselves, to get things done, and to succeed beyond what they thought possible.
- Simon Sinek

Our Seventh Annual Peak Potential Charity Dinner and Auction is November 12. Although you can buy your tickets up until November 1, we set our personal goal this year to sell out by October 12, a month before the event. We urge you to help us reach this goal!

We accomplish many great things with 2020 Vision Quest’s yearly efforts. Each year’s success is largely based upon the support we receive from you and through your efforts on our behalf. Our team of volunteers, myself included, dedicate much time and effort because we believe in what we are able to achieve with your help and we make every effort possible to be worthy of your support. As the quote above suggests, we believe our school presentations help demonstrate a leadership of hard working, positive-minded achievers, while the organizations we support fiscally provide training and partners to strive further than many thought possible.

Peak Potential is a night to celebrate! We are well on the way to our goals of sponsors and ticket sales but we are not there yet. Help us share our goal of a sell-out–and better still, help us reach this goal by becoming part of our team right now.

We certainly have much to celebrate and more importantly we have so much more we can accomplish with your choice to be part of our team. I know some of you live far away (though there’s always the option to stay at the hotel that evening, as I’m doing). I know for some of you this isn’t the right opportunity and I appreciate the encouragement you share in other ways. I also know that we are over 2/3 of the way to a sell-out and already at numbers that would have sold out all our prior smaller venues. But I have a goal to share the evening with a full room of friends and supporters who will make this year our most successful event, and I’m asking you to help make this possible.

Please take a moment to invite a friend or two, buy a table or a ticket, consider a sponsorship, or consider an item for the auction donation. I have been fortunate to hear from so many how much our mission matters. For many, you won’t have to look far to find the same reports because it is likely we have had a positive impact in the life of someone you know. Come to the event and you will get to understand this and more firsthand.

Join me in spending an evening with a community of outstanding people who want to help others reach for the highest peaks and who provide support for the deepest valleys.

Come to Peak Potential!

On July 12, the price goes up for a table of 8 to join us at our 7th Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction. But there’s still enough time for many of you to take advantage of our best rate by putting together a table of 8 friends and buying a table together. Until July 12, the price for a table is just $500, which breaks down to $62.50 per person. (The table price goes up to $600 after that, and individual tickets are always $100 per person.) We invite you to join us at the Courtyard Marriott in Nashua, our largest and finest venue yet, which we hope will be our home for the foreseeable future.

Your kind choice will help us continue the mission that our all-volunteer staff, myself included, work incredibly hard to provide throughout the year. You become part of the positive change in the lives of the more than 50,000 students we have reached in our school visits as well as thousands more outside of the school programs. Meanwhile, we expect to reach significant landmark donations to each of the worthy organizations we support, Guiding Eyes for the Blind and the New Hampshire Association for the Blind. All of the work we accomplish comes from the community of support we’ve built and the vast majority at this event each year.

You may of course purchase individual tickets or paired tickets at any time and tables will still be available until they sell out (we hope once again!). By choosing to purchase a table earlier, you will save a little–which we encourage you to use on the auction or to help entice you to bring friends with you to experience our signature event. Help us ensure it is a complete success by getting on board early. The event isn’t until November 12, but our planning is fully under way and the more tables sold in advance the easier it becomes for us to bring on more sponsors, donors, and features to this marquis event.

I truly hope to see you there and commit to providing a few worthy surprises on the night of the event!

Peak Potential 2016

By Randy Pierce

Our 7th Annual Peak Potential Charity Dinner and Auction is the pivotal event for our entire year. We have moved to the Courtyard Marriott in Nashua, our largest and finest venue ever, and with this move we invite you to join us as attendees, sponsors, donors–and especially, we invite you to help share this announcement as far and wide as possible.

When: November 12, 2016, 6:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Where: Courtyard by Marriott in Nashua NH

The Peak Potential website is live and contains everything you need to know for the event! Buy your tickets and help us work towards another sell-out which always helps us support our sponsorship and donation efforts. To help promote the earlier sales, we offer our best value with a table of 8 for $500 for a limited time. So please gather your friends and arrange to be part of an excellent evening essential to our mission. As always, tickets for couples and singles are available. 

“Why” is perhaps the most powerful question and I hope most of our community already well appreciates the reasons based on years of sell-outs and tremendous support. Our core mission has only grown more powerful as our school presentations continue to positively change the lives of the students, teachers and administrators. Our outreach is beyond 50,000 students just within schools and thousands more in outside programs. Our inspirational outreach has spread throughout New England and across the country, and there is so much more possible with your support.

Our all-volunteer staff continues to help us achieve incredible peaks of success which all begins with the support you give to this event. The essential financial donations we make to Guiding Eyes for the Blind and the New Hampshire Association for the Blind assure that services which transformed my life continue to be available for many others like me. Last year we gave each organization a check for $20,000 right there at the 6th Annual Peak Potential and we hope to continue such success. So please consider joining us immediately!

Attend the event! This venue has more space and tables than we’ve ever had and yet I still have a hope we might not only sell-out again but do so sooner than ever before. Each advanced ticket sale helps show to our sponsors, donors, team, and community how significant a response they will get from this great event.

Sponsorships are also available. You can be a primary contributor to the event! When I think of all the many organizations we’ve helped, I’m always reminded of the primary partners from our Platinum sponsors through our Friends of 2020 Vision Quest who support this event so well. Suggest us to your company or work with us and we’ll reach out to them.

Auction item donations are a vital component for our silent auction and the five marquee live auction items we typically provide. We have begun to learn what items best resonate with our guests and hope you might consider what contribution might boost our event to even higher success.

Sharing the vision. We outreach as well as we are able, but full success comes from our community choosing to share the invitation and possible ways of contributing with their friends, family and beyond. Please do consider every reasonable means of outreach you can help us achieve or reach out to us and we’ll help you. Making this the most successful event ever will help us continue to make the incredible positive impact, which is at the core of our mission.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you get involved! I believe in what we do so much that I put my heart and soul into this effort. I’ve had a tough year amidst the tremendous success and so many are helping us continue to thrive and strive forward. I personally implore you to take a look at all we are accomplishing and I think that will motivate you to be involved. This is what I need and what our Peak Potential event needs starting right now!

Thank you for your time, past support and for joining me on the path to the 7th Annual Peak Potential Charity Dinner and Auction!

Randy, Tracy, and Autumn sitting on a mountain

Thanks from Randy, Tracy, Autumn, and 2020 Vision Quest!

I believe that the active demonstration of thankfulness is more valuable than just the expressing of thankfulness. However, they go together — while I certainly hope and strive to commonly demonstrate my appreciation for the many people (and pups!) who help me achieve a valuable, meaningful, and generally very enjoyable life, I believe it’s important to publicly express it too. So I would like to say thank you to a most excellent community of friends!

On behalf of the 2020 Vision Quest, I think it’s important to talk about some of the powerful realities brought about by the community of support given to our charity efforts. At our recent and very successful Sixth Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction, I told the room some of the highlights of our mission. We have now spoken to more than 45,000 students in schools throughout New England mostly. The litany of positive testimonials on the students, teachers, and administrators is all the thanks I would ever need to continue my earnest work and it is your community of support and encouragement which has helped us to realize that potential and to create a vision of reaching so many more in the years ahead.

Both NHAB and Guiding Eyes have confirmed their appreciation for the donations we’ve given over the last five years – an incredible amount totaling  $164,440. This fantastic financial contribution to those worthy organizations helps ensure that crucial services are available to many visually impaired people.

We do all this with a team of individuals who give freely of their time and efforts to ensure we continue to reach the primary mission of inspiring people to achieve their own versions of peak potential personally, professionally, and philanthropically. I do not know how many lives have been positively impacted by the work of 2020 Vision Quest, but I’m extremely confident it is many thousands of people at this point to match the many thousands of dollars donated.

So one more time for this Thanksgiving week, let me thank all of you reading this and many more who sadly may not know the full measure of my appreciation but deserve it nonetheless. You are an incredible team and I’m both proud and grateful for the peaks we are reaching together. Thank you all!

What an amazing Event!

Last night I attended my fourth Peak Potential Dinner and Charity Auction (the sixth one they’ve held). As I reflect on the night one word comes to mind:

GIVE….

G ~ Guiding Eyes for the Blind

A golden lab puppy named Honey meets Autumn

Future Guide Dog Honey meets Autumn!

The event was attended by 24 puppy raisers from NH, ME and MA and 6 puppies in training  (3 black Labs and 3 yellow Labs).

The hit of the party was 8-week-old yellow Lab “Honey” that was carried around and loved by all.  This event is a special night for the puppy raisers. It is a chance to socialize with each other while supporting a cause that is at the core of each of us. This is to provide the gift of love and raise a puppy for approximately 14 months and then give it back to Guiding Eyes for the Blind. This priceless gift – a Guide Dog will provide a person with vision loss, not only independence and mobility but also companionship.

The dinner works as a wonderful training venue for our pups.  It allows the puppies to practice greeting people, settling at the tables with other dogs and practicing good house manners while food is being served. We each appreciate the chance to be welcomed with our pups by all of those attending the event.

Pat Weber, the Regional Manager for Guiding Eyes for the Blind, and Bill LeBlanc, the NH Region Coordinator, accepted a check from 2020 Vision Quest of $20,200 for the non-profit Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

A second check for $20,200 was given to the NH Association of the Blind.

The culmination of the dinner is getting the chance to hear Randy Pierce speak.  The slideshow that accompanied Randy’s talk reviewed some of his amazing accomplishments as a blind athlete this past year: running the Boston Marathon and the National Championship, being the first blind athlete to compete in the Tough Mudder in LA, watching the amazing video and then Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. Throughout the slideshow Randy mentioned his beloved Guide Dog Quinn who passed away from cancer a year and a half ago. His dedication and devotion to Quinn is evident as you hear Randy’s voice quiver at the mention of his unforgettable pup. All of the puppy raisers also learn by watching Randy’s Guide Dog Autumn working the event with Randy.  She is a beautiful black and tan Labrador retriever that Randy received from Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

V ~ Vision

My take away “nugget” from Randy last night was this: “You do not need to have sight to have Vision.”

Randy has vision. He is a goal setter. We found out that in the next year, Randy plans on writing a book. It was fun watching Randy act as an auctioneer – one of the special auction items was to be emailed pages of the book he will be writing each month. The silent auctions were fabulous. It was fun to take my pup “Gary” and walk by all of the incredible silent auction items. What a great way to raise money for the 2020 Vision Quest charity.

E ~ Education

One of the key missions of 2020 Vision Quest is to lead and inspire students and professionals to reach beyond adversity and achieve their “peak potential.” It is mind boggling to think that Randy and 2020 Vision Quest have spoken to 45,000 students. He recounted letters he has received from some of the schools. Just recently,  a student that attended one of Randy’s presentations was going to drop out of school — but decided not to because of the inspiration and impacting message that he received from Randy. He does this all while integrating life lessons into little stories that teach about overcoming obstacles by managing adversity.

By attending the Peak Potential Dinner and Charity Auction, I am able to support the organization that is so important to me – Guiding Eyes for the Blind – but I gain so much from Randy.  He inspires me to do more…. To push myself…..  To set Goals…. To have vision…  in both my personal life and in my career.

“To Believe and Achieve Through Goal Setting, Problem Solving, and Perseverance!”

Thank you, Randy… you GIVE .

No trick! The safari information is below, but first I am sneaking in an update about my other dream (as if climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and taking an African safari weren’t enough!) One of my responsibilities’ for ensuring the success of 2020 Vision Quest is coordinating ticket sales for our Peak Potential Dinner on November 14. This is more difficult with my two weeks in Africa. I am hopeful we might reach our sell-out or come close before we depart on September 18. If you are thinking about tickets as an individual, couple or table of 8 friends, please consider making that purchase now and helping me with that goal!

We’ve shared the details of our climb  and the team and so now it’s time to talk a little about the other adventure on this trip. Given that it is unlikely I’ll ever return to Tanzania or possibly even Africa, there was no way I wanted to miss the opportunity to take a safari and experience the wonders beyond our mountain climb. Throughout my younger life, one of the epitomes of adventure was a jungle safari with lions, elephants, and the Serengeti plain as well! Through our Climb Killy guide service, we have chosen a 4-Day Safari to begin the day after we have finished climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro and I expect it to be the perfect exclamation on a trip of a lifetime.

DAY 1: ARUSHA – SERENGETI

We’ll fly out of ARUSHA to get directly out onto the appropriate part of the SERENGETI. While the timing is not appropriate for the incredible herd migrations, we’ll be taking our journey to a known point of quality contact with some of the most exciting animals available on the plains. We’ll travel in well equipped and very safe vehicles to blend our safety and the opportunity to get close observations of these animals in their natural environs. Our safari works back towards our hotel over the four days and our first night will be at Kilima Valley Tented camp. It may seem like the Taj Mahal after our time tenting on the mountain!

DAY 2: SERENGETI

Next up is a full day in the Serengeti. We’ll explore the reserve looking for the big five: lions, leopards, buffalo, elephants and rhinos. I didn’t even know the “big five” before the safari but have a few additions like zebras, giraffes, and elephants of course! We again return to the Kilima Valley Tented Camp for a final night.

Gorgeous view of the Ngorongoro crater. (Photo from www.climbkili.com.)

DAY 3: SERENGETI-NGORONGORO

Today we’ll follow game routes from Serengeti National Park to the Ngorongoro Highlands. Perched atop the infamous crater which hosts one of the most abundant wildlife retreats in the world we’ll prepare for our final day with a night at  the Ngorongoro Wildlife  Lodge. 

DAY 4: NGORONGORO – ARUSHA

We’ll descend down the crater 2000-ft for a full-day crater tour. This is the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world and as a result has become a breath-taking natural wonder. While our entire trip could likely be spent exploring the geographical and animal splendors of this region, we’ll have one long day before returning to Arusha for the end of incredible adventure!

Randy and team go through electric shocks in the Tough Mudder they did in March 2015.

Randy and team go through a series of electric shocks in the Tough Mudder they completed in March 2015.

Our adventures have often captured attention and earned us some remarkable media attention. They are, however, so very far from what we do and why we do it. Those adventures are entirely funded personally and we use the attention to hopefully draw focus to our real work. While this information and more is available for those who do explore our website, I wanted to highlight it for the readers of our blog and social media directly.

I once believed everything fun or important in my life was over. I thought I could not and would not have a life worth living. I made jokes and mostly treaded through waters of denial, frustration, and even anger. This is a far distance from the person I’ve become and I never want to forget the roots of those feelings when I first transitioned to blindness at the age of 22. What made the difference for me was the right people and the right perspective.

As I’ve since learned and often try to express, “Going blind is so much harder than being blind.” In fact, for any of us the first encounter with any challenge is so much more difficult than it is once we choose to plan a path for going forward. While there are countless friends and family in the fundamental part of my conversion, two organizations in particular deserve my appreciation and much of the efforts of 2020 Vision Quest. As such, we raise funds and proudly donate those funds to the NH Association for the Blind and, forever in honor of the Mighty Quinn, Guiding Eyes for the Blind. I hope through my efforts and the involvement of many to ensure the life changing services those organizations provide will always be available for the manyh who would benefit so greatly from those services. That’s the “why” behind the fundraising–and yet, still not our core mission.

Newmarket School 2013

Randy speaks at Newmarket School, 2013.

I have a goal to help every single person who might experience feelings similar to my own at that lowest time. I want to demonstrate by my actions and encourage through my words as well the notion of “choosing the right response to any adversity,” about believing in possibility and setting goals to continually strive to reach the peaks we all deserve. I especially wish to provide this opportunity and perspective to students of all ages and to enhance all of our communities by the building and sustaining of each individual into the teamwork which makes life and possibility more successful. I have been fortunate to earn and receive the support of so many people and organizations in a multitude of ways. Whether joining into the core team of volunteers for 2020 vision Quest, helping my own adventures, helping us connect to schools, businesses, and organizations to further our message, donating directly or by attending events like our Annual Peak Potential Dinner and Auction, there have been many transforming this message from an “I” into a “we.”

While it’s hard work and thousands of hours, it is also incredibly rewarding to observe the positive impact we have already had in our brief five years. There are times I’m tired from the adventures, the presentations, the organization and administration efforts and yet when I think of how high we still have yet to climb and what spectacular views await, I find it easy to reach out for this team to join together and continue our climb. I hope you’ll consider sharing this and joining the efforts in whatever way works for you.

(Coming next week: let’s talk about a smaller team as I introduce you to the Kilimanjaro Team heading to Africa on September 18!)

I am thrilled to have been invited to provide a TEDx Talk and certainly believe the result is a video well worth watching. I deliver several of the more poignant messages I believe are simply valuable to any of us in our lives. I share a few of the more fun anecdotal demonstrations of those messages and the comfort with which I can present to any audience. The conference theme emphasized “community” while my presentation put its focus primarily upon “Reaching our Peak Potential.”

“…it rocked the entire audience of 130 people. There were farmers, lawyers, doctors, teachers, artists from young to old… Everyone felt that Randy was talking to them. It was a profound experience.”
– Celeste Barr, Beaver Brook Association

I hope all of you reading this are already aware that we provide corporate presentations and keynote addresses. I also hope you will consider sharing this with every appropriate business and organization who might benefit from having us visit. We believe that the success of our charity directly depends on our ability to earn an honorarium to 2020 Vision Quest by providing such presentations. We are confident it’s a great value and significant benefit to those who attend our presentations as well as ensuring the work we do with students will continue. It must all begin with the choice you make to refer us or invite us to such presentation opportunities.

Once you experience our TEDx Talk above and realize how many more messages we will deliver powerfully to each presentation, I hope you won’t delay in helping us with this outreach. It’s simply an idea worth sharing, which is the motto of TED. Given that, I’ll leave you with the mission statement for TED and simply share how very proud and fortunate I feel for being a part of the TEDx community. Thank you to TEDx Amoskeag Millyard and to many others who have believed in the benefit of my presentations. I hope you too will be part of that team.

The TED Talk  Mission: Spread ideas

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
