Make-a-Wish Foundation Transforms San Francisco into Gotham City. Hearts melt, lives saved!
Today San Francisco has been transformed into an elaborate Make-A-Wish Foundation Adventure for an awesome kid named Miles, who has been successfully battling Leukemia at just five years old. His wish? To save Gotham City! Have no fear, Batkid is here! Below are some truly heart warming and exciting photos from Batkid’s adventures though our city. You’re a hero to all of us, Miles!
Batkid’s day of fighting crime
Batkid Takes off in Batmobile after being called by Police! There’s an issue with the Cable Car on Nob Hill!
Oh no! A Damsel is in Distress she seems to be tied to a mysterious bomb on the cable cars! Will Batkid arrive in time?
Phew- Here come’s Batkid!
Focused and determined, he calmly dismantles the bomb tied to the victim!
An emotional thanks and Batkid saves the Damsel! (We are officially crying over here too.)
But the moment of peace was fleeting. Soon after he saves the lady, Batkid receives word that all these shenanigans are the product of the Riddler, and now he is off to the Financial District to rob a bank!
Batkid fortunately has the help of his trusty sidekick Robin (played by his younger brother)!
Batkid zooms to the financial district and into the Bank to stop the robbery.
Batkid apprehends Riddler!
And throws him in the slammer!
After successfully locking up the Riddler, Batkid hears a loud grumble. He looks around and hears it again…why, it’s his stomach! “Time for a lunch break,” he declares (hey, superheroes gotta eat too!) and takes off to Union Square to grab lunch. While enjoying his meal, he hears the shrill cry of our beloved San Francisco Giants mascot, Lou Seal.
He looks out the window and sees an all too familiar faced Penguin. And he has captured Lou Seal! Batman leaps from his seat. The chase to rescue Lou Seal is on!
Penguin flees with Lou Seal. They’re headed to AT&T Park!
Oh now what is Penguin going to do with Lou Seal tied up in the batting cages?!
Thankfully Batkid was close behind and was able to capture Penguin with the helps of the police officers!
After a congratulatory hug, it’s announced to Batkid over the big screen that he has earned the Key to San Francisco! Or is it Gotham? No matter, just pass the tissue box please!
Batkid on his way to City Hall! Crowds flock to the grand building where he will be commemorated for his bold actions!
