This year marks the 38th Annual Valley Friendship Tour, Open Sky Community Services' signature fundraising event. Open Sky provides services to more than 5,000 individuals in Central Mass working to overcome the challenges of mental illness, developmental disabilities, brain injury, homelessness or other complex challenges. By coming together with other participants, you'll be helping to ensure the youth, young adults, adults and families Open Sky serves will have the support they need to build fulfilling lives.
This year's Valley Friendship Tour is scheduled for Saturday, June 3. The Tour offers those who register the choice of participating in a 30 mile bike ride, 5K run/walk or 1 mile stroll. Just to make sure you'll have nothing to think about but enjoying a day in the beautiful and historic Blackstone Valley, we'll have water stops, sweep vehicles and emergency services.
The fun continues at the Finish Line, where you'll enjoy lunch, live music and the chance to win terrific raffle prizes. Not to mention the satisfaction of knowing you have made a REAL difference!
All of the Valley Friendship Tour activities are centered at Alternatives' Whitin Mill, located in the beautiful and historic Blackstone Valley. The cycling, running and walking routes all begin and end at the Mill.
This year's Tour is scheduled for June 3, 2023. The starting time depends on the route you select, but everyone comes back together for lunch, music and fun!
