Jump to Comments

Some stories just make you smile. The Make-a-Wish Foundation proved that dreams can come true today when they transformed San Francisco (with help from over 12,000 volunteers!) into a modern day Gotham City in order to fulfill the wish of a 5-year-old leukemia patient named Miles.

“Batkid” has had quite the magical afternoon. Let’s take a look at his remarkable adventure.

1. Batkid prepares for battle against his dastardly foe, The Riddler.

3. Batkid heroically saves the damsel in distress from certain harm!



4. But then there was a reported robbery in progress in the Financial District! Would Batkid save the day?


You betcha! Not on Batkid’s watch, Riddler!


5. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
