This is a great story we wanted to share!!

Randy Pierce is the founder of the nonprofit organization 2020 VisionQuest. He, along with his service dog Quinn is on route in becoming the first blind person to hike all 48 New Hampshire peaks over 4,000 feet! He recently visited UNH’s Child Study and Development Center where he educated children on understanding blindness, teamwork with service dogs, and achieving goals.
