Holy Smokes!

San Francisco left its heart with a small child who has already fought a great enemy: leukemia.  Miles Scott charmed the city as he “fought” crime and enjoyed the privilege of “saving” the city during his day as his favorite superhero: Batman.

Thousands of people put their routines and politics aside to empower this little boy for one day, bestowing the title “Bat Kid” on him. No more leukemia treatments, the end of a journey and the beginning of dreams coming true. Nice work, San Fran.
