Kim Cilia, the branch manager at in San Bruno, was just walking out of the Safeway store on El Camino Real near Spruce Avenue in South San Francisco when she saw a bunch of police sirens.
It was about 1 p.m. today, and she had just bought some food that she was going to give to her employees as a sign of gratitude for all their hard work this week.
At first, she thought it was funeral procession because traffic was blocked.
But then she realized what was happening after seeing three people running with a dog on El Camino Real, and one of the runners was carrying a torch.
That brief exciting moment was part of today's Law Enforcement Torch Run, a grassroots fundraiser for this year's Special Olympics, being held on the weekend of June 22 at U.C. Davis.
A number of police officer teams took part in carrying the torch through Northern California today, and this particular torch run went from Menlo Park and through San Mateo County, all the way to San Francisco.
This is what Cilia captured on her phone.
