San Francisco is going to get an unlikely makeover as the Make-A-Wish Foundation transforms the city into Gotham City in honour of five-year-old Miles’ wish to become Batkid!
Miles, a “a sunny, positive little boy” who is fighting leukaemia, will get to battle the likes of the puzzler with an adult Batman by his side on November 15th.
Miles will also get the full comic book storyline treatment: a phone call from the police chief, saving a damsel in distress and capturing the villain mid-robbery and saving a local icon from his arch-nemesis’ grasps. At the end of his busy crime-fighting day, he’ll receive the thanks, praises and a key to the city from San Francisco’s mayor and police chief.
If you’re in the area and would like to help Make-A-Wish turn San Francisco into Gotham for a day, check out the details of this super special wish HERE.
Now if someone could pass me the shark repellant bat-spray because I have to go redeem myself for ugly-crying in the office, that would be great.
