Make-A-Wish Turns San Francisco Into Gotham City For Kid With Cancer

This story is simply brilliant.

As a fellow Batman enthusiast, my heart melted at the news that the Make-A-Wish-Foundation was going to turn San Francisco into a mini-Gotham City for a boy with leukemia, who finds solace in the strength of Batman as he fights his own daily battles.

The Huffington Post reported:

On November 15, the Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation is turning San Francisco into Gotham City, and when trouble strikes that morning, the city’s police chief will call upon Miles — aka Batkid — to leap into action for a day of noble crime-fighting around town.

His first act of duty will be rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, followed by arresting the Puzzler for robbing a downtown vault. Miles will then refuel at Burger Bar directly above Union Square, but mid-lunch, he’ll get a call from the police chief directing him to look out the window. He’ll see a group of volunteers crying out for his help to save San Francisco Giants mascot, Lou Seal, who’s been kidnapped by Mr. Penguin in a convertible getaway car.

In a wild chase, Miles will free Lou Seal at AT&T Park and head to City Hall, where Mayor Ed Lee will thank him for his heroism and hand him the key to the city. Hundreds of adoring San Franciscans will be there to cheer

Make-A-Wish has listed the times and locations at which to watch Miles’ heroics and cheer him on. Going through what he’s going through, at such a young age is worthy of being a Super Hero in his own right.

The day belongs to young Miles. May many more of his dreams come true.
