Apache Mall donated $25,000 to Mayo Clinic's 150th Patient Care Fund on Friday, according to a news release.

In the mall's Mathews Grand Lobby, Apache Mall General Manager Kim Bradley presented the check to Dr. Kerry Olsen, who chairs the Mayo Clinic Sesquicentennial Committee.

The fund helps with personal expenses for patients and their families while they're at Mayo Clinic to receive care. The fund is supported by direct donations, selling souvenirs and fees paid for the Healthy Human Race.

"We are honored to accept this significant gift from Apache Mall and are thrilled to begin distributing throughout the community," Olsen said in the news release.
