FLINT (WJRT) - (06/05/14) - Some people race for a personal best time, others love to collect medals.

Thursday, Diplodash runners had the right idea. When the runners finished the 5K through Flint, they got ice cream - and that's not even the best part.

Diplomat Pharmacy hosts the event to raise money for patients who can't afford their medications. The Helping Hands Foundation raises money and secures grants to help pay for medications for patients in need.

"Helping hands helps with co-pay assistance. So people that can't afford to pay their co-pay, because we're a specialty pharmacist, we provide very expensive medications, this helps people to help alleviate that cost," said Kali Lucas, Diplomat community relations.

Last year, they helped connect patients with more than $24 million in funding assistance.
