Numerous boys and girls around the world grow up with dreams of being a superhero. This is the case for one five year old boy whose name is Miles. Miles will be living the dream on November 15 when the city of San Francisco will undergo a transformation so that he can become “Batkid.”

The Make-A-Wish foundation, which strives to make wishes and dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses come true, is behind this exciting event. Miles has leukemia, which is a form of blood cancer that begins in the bone marrow. The Make-A-Wish foundation has decided to make his dream of being “Batkid” come true by asking San Francisco to turn itself into Gotham City on the fifteenth.

When the big day rolls around, the city will have a series of “rescues and cheers” set up for Miles. They will range from saving a damsel in distress from the railroad tracks to stopping a bank robber to rescuing the city’s mascot from dastardly villain Mr. P.

At the end of the day, Miles will be presented with the key to the city by San Francisco’s mayor Ed Lee. Throughout the day, a crowd of volunteers will be there to cheer Miles on.

“Miles may only be five years old but he is fighting a very adult battle, one that we hope he will win,” the Make-A-Wish foundation stated in a press release about the event.
