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.

Reaching Your Peak Potential

At the core of the 2020 Vision Quest mission is sharing our message of reaching for and achieving one’s own “peak potential” in educational presentations to students wherever possible. We’re proud to have reached more than 50,000 students with our award-winning presentations, and more with our keynote and workshop presentations. We’d love to talk to you about scheduling a presentation for your school, company, group or team.

Our presentations are calibrated to suit the target audience with appropriate aspects of messaging and anecdotes to bring about the most impactful response. Randy shares his own experiences — mountain climbing, running marathons (and winning a national championship), weaving through Tough Mudder obstacle courses as well as living in a wheelchair for 1 year, 8 months and 21 days — to amplify the 2020 Vision Quest themes of overcoming adversity, setting and achieving goals, and disability awareness. Video clips, including some from a New England Emmy-award winning documentary and some that made him a viral sensation, punctuate his presentations. And his charming and talented guide dog Autumn always threatens to steal the show!

As the New Year brings inevitable reflections on goals and achievements, our mission can help you climb whatever mountain stands before you. Schedule us for a visit now and start celebrating steady steps of achievement over procrastination and adversity on your way to achieving your Peak Potential.
