It’s not who I am underneath, but what i do that defines me. – BATMAN
What originally started as a simple wish to the Bay Area chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, became reality today for a sweet five year old boy named Miles who is battling leukemia, and is currently in remission.
Over 12,000 volunteers donned the city streets today to be a part of the amazing spectacle that is bringing joy to hearts and tears to eyes on this great Friday morning. My heart is happier today.
Miles’ journey is comprised of a partner, a real-live Batman as his co-pilot. He’s also been riding around the city in his own “Batmobile,” a black Lamborghini fitted with the batman symbol and police escort to save the city! So far, he’s saved a damsel in distress that was tied up on the cable car line, captured The Riddler and still has some more hero activities left. He’s meeting with Mayor Ed Lee later in the day to receive the key to the city!
