Ways to Help


Together we can do so much! 

Gather your family, friends and co-workers and join the fun at the 34th Annual Valley Friendship Tour on June 1. There's something for everyone - from a 30 mile bike ride to a 5K run/walk or a 1 mile stroll. Good music, delicious food and great conversation. Best of all, you'll be supporting Open Sky's services for individuals and families - helping them to see beyond and live beyond their current circumstances to achieve their hopes and dreams.
