Thumbs up BatKid, Make a Wish Foundation & San Francis..I mean Gotham City!

Originally, I heard about this by word of mouth then on the news. This is FANTASTIC!! If you're in the city on the 15th, you should swing by to watch the festivities!

San Francisco to Transform Into Gotham for Boy’s Batman Make-a-Wish

A little boy is about to get the surprise of a lifetime when San Francisco turns itself into Gotham City on Nov. 15 to fulfill the 5-year-old leukemia patient’s wish to be Batman for a day.

“He is a sunny, positive little boy and finds his inspiration in super heroes,” Make-a-Wish said of the boy, Miles. “When we interviewed Miles for a wish, he surprised even his parents: he wishes to BE BatKid!”

Make-a-Wish decided to make Miles’ dream come true and, in a rare move for the foundation, asked the public to participate.

“This is one that we thought of as a great opportunity for people to share in the power of a wish so they can see how it affects not only the children and their families, but also the other people involved,” Jen Wilson, marketing and promotions manager for Make-a-Wish in San Francisco, told ABCNews.com. “It has a big impact on many people.”

The organization has created an entire day catered to Miles’ dream.

On the morning of Nov. 15, a breaking news story will appear on TV in San Francisco. The police chief will be asking if anyone knows where Batkid is because he needs his help to solve a crime and “bringing the bad guys to justice,” Make-a-Wish said in a statement.

Miles’ day will then include rescuing a damsel in distress tied up across the Hyde Street cable car line and capturing the Puzzler in the act of robbing a downtown vault. As Batkid eats his lunch at Burger Bar, he’ll get a special message from the chief telling him to go to the window where he’ll look out over Union Square and see a huge group of volunteers jumping up and down and asking for his help.”
