San Francisco to turn into Gotham City for 5-year-old with cancer

Miles – who has leukemia- wants to be a superhero for a day.

ON 15 NOVEMBER San Francisco will turn into a real-life Gotham City to make the wish of a five-year-old cancer sufferer come true.

Miles, who suffers from leukemia, wants to be a superhero for a day – specifically Batkid.

The Make A Wish Foundation is organising a series of events involving the chief of police, City Hall and members of the public, who will all help Miles to catch the villainous Mr P.

Here’s how it will go down…

After lunch Batkid will get another message from the Chief of Police, and a huge crowd of volunteers will meet him to ask for Batkid’s help

You see, the villainous Mr P will have stolen a famous San Francisco mascot (Lou Seal) in Union Square, where Batkid has been having lunch

Batkid will save Lou Seal, and then head to City Hall where the Mayor and the Chief of Police will present him with a key to the city, and a huge crowd will cheer him on

The Make A Wish Foundation is asking members of the public to gather at the specific locations to take part in flashmobs and cheering Batkid on.

We just know he’s going to save the day!
