Miles wanted to be Batkid for the day. He had no idea thousands of people would be working to transform San Francisco into Gotham City to make his Make-A-Wish dream come true. Not only was the front story of the San Francisco Chronicle (written by the SUPER reporter Clark Kent) all about Batkid, but his entire day was spent zipping throught the streets in the bat mobile and stopping all evil doers
Make A Wish posted an official announcement, inviting anyone who wanted to join in the chance to help Batkid the opportunity to throughout the day:
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! This is a great opportunity to witness the magic of a wish in action and a perfect outing for kids, families, and Bat-fans everywhere!
