On the Move for Open Sky Community Services

Worcester-based nonprofit human services agency Open Sky Community Services raised more than $115,000 during its 39th Annual Valley Friendship Tour on June 1 to support its programs for children, adults and families throughout Central Massachusetts.
The 39th Annual Valley Friendship Tour saw more than 300 participants walking, running, and rolling through the Blackstone Valley on June 1, benefiting Open Sky Community Services, a nonprofit dedicated to behavioral health and human services. 
The fundraising event starts and ends at Alternatives’ Whitin Mill and is a highlight of the year. Open Sky Community Services  supports nearly 150 programs that offer assistance to children, adults, and families dealing with mental health issues, developmental disabilities, substance use disorders, brain injuries, homelessness, and other challenges. This year’s event raised more than $115,000, contributing to the millions of dollars the tour has garnered over nearly four decades for Central Massachusetts individuals and families.
