Boy’s Dreams of Gotham to Come True in San Francisco

Somewhere deep inside all of us, there is a small part of us that wishes that we could be Batman. Having the ability to be a fear-inducing superhero billionaire is attractive to almost everyone. For one boy in San Francisco, that dream will become a reality next month.

Young Miles will have the opportunity to become Gotham's greatest hero.

Diagnosed with Leukemia, five-year-old Miles will become the Caped Crusader next month thanks to the Make-a-Wish foundation. In order to make his dream a reality, the foundation will transform part of the Bay Area city into Gotham, complete with costumed actors and a Batmobile. Miles will fight crime and travel Gotham as the Dark Knight. Read the full description of Miles’ dream day in the words of the Make-a-Wish foundation below.

“The day starts with a breaking news story,” reads the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s description of the plan. “Gotham City’s Police Chief asks if anyone knows the whereabouts of Batman because he needs his help solving crime and bringing the bad guys to justice. Our little Batman, Miles, in training with adult Batman, is ready to answer the call! Of course Batman will be riding in the “real” batmobile around the City, saving the day and performing feats of derring-do!

“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! This is a great opportunity to see the magic of a wish in action – and a perfect outing for kids, grandkids and Bat-fans everywhere!”
