Check out the adventures Batkid had today thanks to San Francisco and Make-A-Wish!
Something quite awesome happened today in San Francisco. The city and Make-A-Wish teamed up to make a dream come true for five-year-old Miles, who has been battling leukemia. Miles wanted to be Batman for a day, and thanks to San Francisco, Make-A-Wish and almost 12,000 volunteers, his wish was granted. San Francisco became Gotham City, and it was up to Miles (now known as Batkid) to protect the city. Check out the details on Miles' adventures as Batkid below, as well as pictures of the adorable kid and the volunteers that helped with the events.
On November 15th, Miles will get his wish! The day will begin with a breaking news story. San Francisco’s Police Chief will ask if anyone knows the whereabouts of Batkid. The city needs his help to fight crime and capture villains! Our little Batkid, along with adult Batman, will be ready to answer the call!
After rescuing a damsel-in-distress from the Hyde Street cable-car tracks in Nob Hill, then capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batkid will enjoy lunch at the Burger Bar, near Union Square. After lunch, he will get a special message from the Police Chief and go to the window where he will look down and see a huge crowd of volunteers jumping up and down pleading for Batkid’s help. Why? The villainous Penguin has just kidnapped a famous San Francisco mascot (Lou Seal)! The Batmobile will be visible on Union Square, (a convertible offering a view of the crime in progress), and the chase will be on!
After apprehending the Penguin, Batkid will make a final stop at City Hall where the Mayor of San Francisco, Ed Lee, along with the Police Chief, will congratulate him on his daring feats of justice and present him with a key to the city. We hope to have a huge crowd of volunteers and donors there to cheer him on and thank our Batkid!
It's always great to hear stories like this one. Makes you kind of not care so much about what direction Zack Snyder will take with the character in BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, doesn't it? Oh, I'm sure we'll all be bitching/arguing about it tomorrow, but today is Batkid's day. Great work by San Francisco, Make-A-Wish, the people who volunteered, and the men and women in uniform that helped turn Miles' dream into reality. They should all be recognized for their work in making today very special for this brave young boy.
