San Francisco turned into Gotham City on November 15 when the Make-a-Wish foundation made 5-year-old Mile's fantasy to become Batkid come true. 12,000 people signed up to take part in the magical day for the young Leukemia patient, including the San Francisco Giants, the city's mayor, and even the police department.
With inventor and acrobat Eric Johnston playing Batman and his wife, Sue Graham Johnston (pictured) as the damsel in distress, the day started with the Hyatt signaling the Bat Symbol for help. “Riddler and Penguin are watching right now. We can’t tip our hand to them,” said Johnston, who is helping Miles stop crime throughout the day in a custom Bat Mobile.
The day of amazing events will end with San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee giving Miles, whose cancer is in remission, a special honor. “There’s going to be mayhem and it’s going to be wonderful mayhem and love,” said Make-A-Wish Executive Director Patricia Wilson. “I’ve been at Make-A-Wish for 15 years and never did I think something like this would be possible.”
