As a native San Franciscan, stories like this make me proud to be from the city by the bay.  The Make-A-Wish Foundation with the help of 13,000 volunteers made a 5 year old Miles’ dream come true.  Throughout his whole life Miles has been the epitome of tough.  He’s battled leukemia for as long as he knows. Through it all, Miles hung in there and only had one wish – to be batman for the day.

The city of San Francisco made Miles’ dream come true, transforming the city into Gotham replete with villains (Joker and Penguin) and damsels in distress. Watch Miles kick these villains’ butts and save the city from annihilation.  More importantly, watch Miles show us all how to be strong through adversity.
