On June 2, 2012 in Concord, NH, our 2020 Vision Quest team will participate in the New Hampshire Association for the Blind’s Walk for Sight, walking 3 km from their office to the State House and then back. We invite you to join our team. Sign up here!

My goal is to have at least one team member for every mile I walk in honor of this 100 year anniversary. The catch is that I’ll arrive in Concord after having traversed 100 miles! In honor of this organization to which I owe a debt of gratitude, I will walk across the State of NH linking the Concord and Seacoast offices. Our vision is to achieve at least 100 members.

I don’t expect you all to join me for the back-to-back 50 mile days we are hiking before this walk, but I hope you’ll help me reach a little higher with this goal of celebrating in style with one incredible team for the 3k! Whether joining us live, virtually, or by donation, your involvement will make a tremendously positive influence on the event.

Last June, more than 400 people – young and old – came together for the 3k Walk for Sight and did what they could to raise as much as possible for the vital rehabilitation services and programs provided by the New Hampshire Association for the Blind. With your help, this year will be just as successful and just as much fun!

The Association is celebrating its 100th anniversary and organizers of the Walk are planning additional activities at this year’s walk, such as eye screening and eye safety booths. As always, lunch is provided. There will also be awards, live entertainment, and door prizes.

For a registration fee of only $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for children under 12 (which includes all of the above plus a special 100 year anniversary t-shirt) you can see how easy it is to say “yes! – I’ll walk the 3K to help support the Association’s mission ‘to advance the independence of persons who are blind and visually impaired in NH.’”

I’ve reached plenty of peaks over the last few years and in large part due to some tremendous help and support. Now with your help, we can reach another tremendous milestone.

So please consider walking with me and my team. If you can’t walk this year, a donation of any size would also be greatly appreciated to help us reach our goal.

As the event draws closer and we close in on our goal, I hope to be able to share more exciting events connected to this day. Thank you for the consideration and I truly hope we pull together a record breaking team!

Randy & the Mighty Quinn
