Heroes come in all Sizes

Growing up, what kid hasn’t dreamt of being a super hero? For some, their battles against the forces of evil come in the form of fighting disease. Meet Miles, a brave little 5 year old boy who’s been combating Leukemia. He’s a positive happy kid who finds inspiration through Super Heroes. In fact, when asked what he truly wanted by the Make-A-Wish foundation, he responded he wished to be “Batkid.” On November 15th, Batkid will be teaming up with Batman in San Francisco which will be transformed into the city of Gotham to battle villains and save the day.

Thousands of Volunteers from Make-a-Wish in the Bay area will be on hand to make the transformation to Gotham a reality. Batkid and Batman will have their hands full as a full day of adventures has been planned:

The day starts with a breaking news story. San Francisco’s Police Chief asks if anyone knows the whereabouts of Batkid because he needs his help solving crime and bringing the bad guys to justice. Our little Batkid, Miles, in training with adult Batman, is ready to answer the call! Of course Batkid will be riding around the City, saving the day and performing feats of derring-do!

After rescuing a damsel in distress from the Hyde St. cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batkid will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a special message from the Chief of Police to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batkid’s help. Why?

Because the villainous Mr. P. will be kidnapping a famous San Francisco mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!

Be sure to check out Miles’ Make-a-Wish page to learn more details. This little guy might be the best Batkid ever. Truth be told, he’s already a hero.
