Batkid to the Rescue!


This story has been making the rounds this week, but on the off-chance you haven’t read about it – behold the coolest Make-A-Wish event ever.  Tomorrow, the city of San Francisco is literally going to be transformed into Gotham City to make one five year-old’s dreams come true.  Miles’ ultimate wish is to be Batkid for a day.  And when he’s not fighting crime, he’s fighting leukemia, so Make-A-Wish and thousands of good people in San Francisco are making that dream come true.

According to Make-A-Wish, this is how it’s all going down tomorrow (find out how YOU can get involved here), and please send this to anyone you know in San Francisco!

“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!”
