You undoubtedly remember November 15, 2013, the day when the entire city of San Francisco rallied around Miles “Batkid” Scott, helping to make a little boy’s wish come true for just one day. The story of Miles’ magical, crime-fighting day has been made into a new documentary, Batkid Begins, which not only gives you a proper introduction to Miles and his family, but shows the ways his story touched the lives of people around the world.
Friday's here, and we've got the links to help you wrap your work week.
The Make-a-Wish Foundation teamed with the city of San Francisco earlier this month to to give five-year-old Miles "Batkid" Scott his chance to protect "Gotham City" from criminals, but the young hero's mission continues.
This morning, the Batkid appeared on Good Morning America to protect rapper Pitbull from the Joker, and a group of artists from SF has even produced a digital comic about his heroic story. Batkid's starting to give Bruce Wayne a run for his money.
If you want to kick off your weekend with some nice news that might just make you cry a little bit, you're in luck: Today in San Francisco, the Make-A-Wish foundation is helping a five year-old cancer patient named Miles live out a wish to become Batman. Thanks to the overwhelming support of volunteers, they've been able to send Miles on an adventure of rescuing citizens, battling supervillains and even getting the key to the city in an effort to give him the best day ever.
Even the San Francisco Chronicle has gotten into the act, printing a Gotham City Chronicle special edition that details Batkid's adventures, with stories by Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Brenda Starr and Perry White, apparently on loan to the West Coast from the Daily Planet.
