San Francisco Turning Into Gotham For 5-Year Old's Make A Wish Foundation Wish

5-year-old-batman-san-francisco.jpg

Meet five year old Miles. Because life isn't fair, Miles is battling leukemia. And on November 15th the Make-A-Wish Foundation is going to turn the city of San Francisco into Gotham and Miles, acting as Batkid, is going to save the day. If you live in the area you can volunteer to help cheer Miles on throughout the day and if you boss asks why you need the time off you look them straight in the eyes and say, "For something far more important than this shit."

The day starts with a breaking news story. San Francisco's Police Chief asks if anyone knows the whereabouts of Batkid because he needs his help solving crime and bringing the bad guys to justice. Our little Batkid, Miles, in training with adult Batman, is ready to answer the call! Of course Batkid will be riding around the City, saving the day and performing feats of derring-do!


After rescuing a damsel in distress from the Hyde St. cable car tracks in Nob Hill, and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault, Batkid will eat his lunch at the Burger Bar in San Francisco - directly above Union Square. While at Burger Bar, he will get a special message from the Chief of Police to go to the window - where he will look down and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down asking for Batkid's help. Why?

Because the villainous Mr. P. will be kidnapping a famous San Francisco 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 Mr. P., Batkid will make his final stop at City Hall, where the Mayor and the Police Chief of San Francisco will thank him and give him the key to the city.

Good luck, Batkid. We'll all be following your heroics throughout the day. If you need any help let me know, I have a guy in San Francisco that can make things happen. Don't tell me how he did it, but one time he found my favorite ice cream at 4 in the morning. "24 hour supermaket." I SAID DON'T TELL ME. But seriously, get better soon, Miles -- we're rooting for you.

Thanks to Rodger, cam, Meghan, Lisa and Brookie, who are firm believers Miles is going to win this battle.

    Goddam... stories like this would have made me emotional before... but now that I have kids they turn me into a blubbery mess. It sucks that Charles Manson is still alive and well while good people suffer with tragedy...

  • Matty Spinny

    can we leave it as Gotham when the day is over and just change the name from San Francisco to Gotham! think of how happy that kid will be when he realizes that he made all the comic book peoples dream come true.
