The Make-a-wish foundation is making one little boy’s dream come true.
Five-year-old Miles is suffering from Leukemia. Make-a-Wish foundation is turning San Francisco into Gotham City because it is his dream to become Batman.
On November 15, 2013 five-year-old Miles will receive the surprise of a lifetime and his dream will come true as he will get the chance to become Batman, or Batkid as he called himself since he’s only five.
Make-a-Wish Foundation is “a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy,” according to Wikipedia.
This particular dream that Miles has to become Batman is unique for the Make-a-Wish Foundation because the organization has asked the public to participate by getting involved in turning San Francisco into Gotham City.
According to the Make-a-Wish site, November 15 will start off with a breaking news story and San Francisco’s Police Chief will be asking anyone if they have seen “Batkid”.
When they find Batkid, he and The Caped Crusader will answer a call to help save a “damsel-in-distress from the Hyde Street cable-car tracks in Nob Hill, then capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault.”
After Batkid does some hard work of saving lives, he will enjoy some lunch at Union Square’s Burger Bar. After lunch the San Francisco Police Chief will send a message to Batkid to look out the window because Mr. P has kidnapped San Francisco’s mascot Lou Seal.
This is where the public participants will join in. When Miles looks out of Burger Bar’s window, he will see a huge crowd of volunteers asking for Batkid to help save Lou Seal.
Once Batkid has saved the day, Miles will appear at City Hall where the Police Chief and Mayor of San Francisco will give Batkid the key to the city and congratulate him.
