                                    Welcome to Fred's 2021 Vision Walk

Once again, I will be walking to raise money for Future In Sight (formerly known as the NH Association for the Blind). You can visit their website at: https://futureinsight.org/our-mission/. I started receiving help from this organization in 2017 as a visually impaired resident of NH, and continue to benefit from them as a legally blind resident.

Over the past 2 years, I've walked the walk and had the pleasure of walking along side my support team! Over that time, I’ve had 15 teammates walking for our team: “Walking for 20/20”! This team is made up of my friends and family (including my 2 wonderful grandchildren and grand-neice and grand-nephew). That’s THREE generations! I am so grateful to have such amazing support along my personal journey into the blind world.

This year’s walk will be a hybrid. The walk will start on August 7th and end on August 14th. We will walk in our own neighborhoods during the week to be socially distant and to help spread awareness throughout the state. Then we will have a grand finale on the 14th at the Future In Sight campus, 25 Walker St, Concord, NH.

   Since the start of my personal  journey in 2017, I have received so many benefits from Future In Sight. Due to the pandemic, we've had many Zoom sessions. Some are technology sessions where we learn how to use technology, like our smart phones, to help read text aloud to us from menus, etc. We also hold Peer Support sessions so that we don’t feel so isolated.

I can’t thank the people of Future In Sight enough for their help.

I also want to thank my wonderful family and friends. Without your help and support, my life and attitude would be very different. I would not have been able to make it without you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Please join me to raise important financial resources for the blind and vision impaired residents of New Hampshire. You can donate or raise funds on your own by joining our team: “Walking for 20/20”. When you join the team, you will get a 2021 Vision Walk T-Shirt.

About Us

Future In Sight, established as the New Hampshire Association for the Blind in 1912, is the only statewide nonprofit that provides specialized services and support that meet the range of needs that individuals of all ages and stages of vision loss experience at home, at school, and in the community – including via online learning and telehealth channels.

In a highly visual world, having a visual impairment can have a far-reaching effect on all aspects of life. From a child’s early development, teens’ preparation for the workforce, adults’ career adaptations, to seniors’ safety, independence, and mental health, building connections, accessing training and support are all critical drivers of overall health and well-being.

Both our Youth Services and Adult Services teams address the holistic needs of the person served through 1:1 training and group social/recreational activities, peer support and technology user groups. Increasingly, advances and affordability of technology in the marketplace enable greater accessibility for individuals who are blind or visually impaired; our staff integrates those tools into the education and training they provide, while providing expertise to parents, teachers and other professionals who seek to support accessibility for the student.

Together with the students’ and clients’ hard work and determination, we deliver services that yield lasting outcomes, so that they thrive during life’s changing circumstances — and we do not deny anyone services based on their financial capacity.

We thank you for your support!
