Make-A-Wish Will Turn San Francisco Into Gotham City For One Day To Fulfill 5-Year-Old’s Wish


Miles wants to be a superhero. At just five years old, he already battles against leukemia on a daily basis, but he wants to take on crime as well—so he told Make-A-Wish he wants to be Batkid. They are fulfilling his dream in the most wonderful way: they are turning San Francisco into Gotham City for the day on November 15th. Yes, it is awesome.

Make-A-Wish has a day full of activities planned. As Batkid, Miles will have to rescue a damsel in distress, stop a robbery, and bag a kidnapper. He’ll have to pursue villains around the city and will eventually end up at City Hall with the Mayor and Police Chief of San Francisco giving him the key to the city. If that doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy, I don’t know what will.

If you’ll happen to be in San Francisco on the day of Gotham, you can participate by watching Miles’ heroics or attending his celebration ceremony. You can get details on times and locations from Make-A-Wish. We have faith in you, Batkid!
