Make-A-Wish Will Turn San Francisco Into Gotham City So A 5-Year Old Can Be Batman For A Day

Miles is five years old and battling Leukemia. His wish is to be Batman, so on November 15, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is turning San Francisco in Gotham City and organizing a day of crime-fighting fun for the little guy, all leading up to a visit to the Mayor’s office where he’ll receive a key to the city for all of his hard work.

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!

After catching Mr. P., Batkid will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of San Francisco will thank him and give him the key to the city. 

Good luck, little dude!
