The story of the SF Batkid went viral yesterday, as San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City for a day so that one brave little boy battling Leukemia could live out his wish — to be Batman. Made possible by the amazing people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the City of San Francisco, thousands of people turned out to cheer on 5-year-old Miles, a.k.a. Batkid, as he repeatedly saved the city from villains like The Riddler and The Penguin. As if rescuing a damsel in distress tied to the cable car tracks and stopping an attempted bank robbery wasn’t enough, we were on hand in Union Square as The Penguin kidnapped beloved Giant’s mascot Lou Seal and Batkid was summoned to save him. The mood in the crowd was overwhelmingly positive as people held up homemade signs and hoped to catch a glimpse of the tiny masked hero. It was one of the most genuine, heartwarming displays of humanity we’ve witnessed. Thank you for saving us, Batkid!
