WELLESLEY, Mass. – The Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation recently honored five individuals and organizations in the region for their volunteer contributions to charitable organizations in their communities as part of its sixth annual Community Spirit Awards on Thursday, April 3, at its offices in Wellesley.

Among the award recipients was 2020 Vision Quest of Nashua. The organization inspires people to reach beyond adversity and achieve their highest goals – personal, professional and philanthropic.

It began with Randy Pierce, who is blind, and his guide dog Quinn climbing all 48 of the rugged 4,000-foot peaks in the White Mountains. Using these and other adventures to raise awareness, Pierce works to inspire others to set their own visions and help them achieve their goals through outreach, education and support.

To date, 2020 Vision Quest has reached more than 30,000 students with its inspirational message. In addition, the organization presented funding in excess of $30,000 to each of the New Hampshire Association for the Blind and Guiding Eyes for the Blind. Vision Quest will receive a $250 grant from Harvard Pilgrim Foundation.
