Your Morning Cry: S.F. Turned Into Gotham for 5-Year-Old's Make-a-Wish

Illustration for article titled Your Morning Cry: S.F. Turned Into Gotham for 5-Year-Olds Make-a-Wish

Young Miles is getting a dream come true thanks to the clever people at Make-a-Wish Foundation. On November 15, the five-year-old, who has leukemia, will spend the day crime fighting his way around San Francisco with his favorite superhero, Batman.

Miles will start his day training with Batman before cruising the city in a real Batmobile (dope!). Then, the real action begins. He'll save someone tied to train tracks in Nob Hill, before stopping the Riddler from robbing a bank. After all that, he'll have to face the Penguin himself!

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.

How fucking cool is that? Also, WHY IS IT RAINING INSIDE ON MY FACE RIGHT NOW?

Oh, and if you're in San Francisco on November 15, maybe you want to volunteer? It sounds like a magical day and is most definitely not to be missed. Good luck, lil' Batman.

What a great story. There is actually something similar to my town going on. A young boy with brain cancer was sent home from the hospital to spend his last days at home. Since his favorite holiday is Christmas, and he won't make it, the entire town has decorated for Christmas. I believe they have even brought in fake snow.

The lengths people will go to to comfort a sick child is so heart-warming.
