Runners Divert From Race To Thank 95-Year-Old WWII Vet

Before an 8-kilometer charity race in San Jose, Calif. was even finished, there was already a winner.

A group of runners took a spontaneous detour to thank a 95-year-old World War II veteran who had come out to cheer them on. Joe Bell, dressed in his military uniform, stood outside his home, clapping as runners passed by in the annual 408K Race. As the runners saw Bell clapping and waving, they began to head over to shake his hand and thank him for his service in a video captured by San Jose Mercury News reporter Julia Prodis Sulek.
