Some people might think superheroes are just in comic books, but on November 15th the city of San Francisco was visited by a 5 year old superhero named Miles Scott, aka Batkid. Miles was diagnosed with leukemia which is now in remission following his last treatment in June of 2013. With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the the City of San Francisco, Miles got to live out his dream of being Batman and saving Gotham City. Little Batkid had a long day of fighting crime; first he saved a woman who was straped to a bomb on a cable car track, then he stopped the Riddler from robbing a bank! Not to mention he also saved the SF Gaints mascot Lou Seal from Penguin, and last but not least he got the key to Gotham City as a thank you for all his hard work. Here are some pictures of Batkid in action!
I've never been so proud to be from the Bay Area. San Francisco is truly an amazing city. It's astonishing that 12,000 people from all over the world came to SF to support Miles and his dream. In a world where there is so much violence and hate, its amazing to see that dreams do come true and people are so generous and kind to support one little boys dream.
Thank you for saving Gotham City Miles!
