Today I would like to share a really touching story about a 5 year old boy who was struggling with Leukemia and really pursued his dream by being a super hero for a day.
Miles, who is now in remission after several years of treatment for Leukemia, was met with a surprise when he arrived in San Francisco to collect a costume of his favorite superhero.
The Make-A-Wish foundation had organized a day of crime-fighting antics for the pint-sized superhero.
Local media estimated that at least 7,000 people took to the street to cheer Batkid on as he embarked upon his crime-fighting mission
in a black Lamborghini emblazoned with the Batman logo accompanied by the caped crusader himself. Police officers on motorcycles escorted Batkid as he raced around the city, blocking traffic and closing off roads.
Miles rescued a damsel in distress tied to a cable car track in San Fracisco’s Russian Hill neighborhood. Enraptured fans cheered and applauded as he disabled a plastic replica bomb she was tied to.
Miles then sped off once again to towards a bank robbery and capture his arch-enemy, the Joker, red-handed. The Batkid’s final feat of the day saw him foil the kidnapping of Giants’ mascot Lou Seal by the Penguin.
Miles enjoyed every minute and I have to admit, I cried when I saw the video! Not only because of miles but als because of all the loving fans around the world that showed their support.
It’s really touching to see that such a little boy can have such a big impact on society.
