Five year old Miles in in the battle of his life against Leukemia. Through the Make-A-Wish program, they have recently granted him his of fulfilling his life-long dream as his favorite character Batman! Next Friday November 15th, the program organizers will transform San Francisco into Gotham City for a day with thousands of volunteers who will be playing along to make his dream come true. I wish I could see this in person! This is the sweetest thing I’ve heard since last week (this is a late post) but Bay Area readers, will you go check this out for me?
Along with a grownup Batman sidekick, Miles will get a call from the police chief and jump into his very own Batmobile to defend the city against some of his fiercest foes – including the Riddler and Penguin.
Make-A-Wish Bay Area describes the plot line of the day:
After rescuing a damsel in distress from the cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Riddler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batman will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco – directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a call on his batphone to go to the window – where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batman’s help. Why?
Because the Penguin will be kidnapping a famous Gotham City mascot! The getaway car will be visible on Union Square (a convertible so that everyone can see what is happening), and the chase will be on!
After catching the Penguin, Batman will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of Gotham City will thank him and give him the key to the city. We plan on having hundreds of volunteers and donors collected to cheer and thank our Batman!
