FARGO — Sweet treats were used to help raise awareness for mental health on Tuesday, May 23.

As May is mental health awareness month, Sanford Health outpatient clinics took part in their first two-week Nothing Bundt Cakes fundraiser to benefit their walk team for Out of the Darkness.

"With everything that's been going on and how many we've lost in our community due to suicide, I think it's just a really nice way to see that Sanford does care and that we're supporting and wanting to give back to our community," said Chelsey Strand, an integrated health therapist for Sanford Health.

With their choice of red velvet, confetti, or chocolate chip, professionals in internal medicine, family medicine, and the children department got to pick from a variety of flavors.

On top of selling 352 cakes, Nothing Bundt Cakes gave them 20% of the sales. They were able to raise over $2,000.


Sanford hopes to make this an annual fundraiser to bring awareness to mental health issues."There's been so much....going on in our community with suicide, so just bringing that awareness is important," Strand said.

Sanford’s Out of the Darkness walk is set for Sept. 17 at Scheels Arena.
