Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area released a behind-the-scenes video of the heroic adventures of five-year-old Miles Scott (better known as “BatKid“) in San Francisco. It highlights all of the great challenges that BatKid overcame while keeping the people of San Francisco safe from harm for one day. The tough little dude also won his three-year fight with leukemia. Miles truly is a superhero.
What is the Batkid Fund?
Miles’ family aims to keep the spirit of Batkid alive by launching a charity fund in the tiny superhero’s name. The Fund will operate under the auspices of the San Francisco Forty Niners’ Foundation. Proceeds will benefit three charities chosen by the Scotts: a local medical center, the Ronald McDonald House, and Make-A-Wish. “It seems only fitting that following a day when the world demonstrated caring and compassion for Batkid, Batkid can now help others,” said Miles’ parents, Nick and Natalie Scott. “We were honored to receive many offers of gifts or assistance, but now that Miles’ leukemia is in remission, we want to use this moment to draw attention to other parents who are coping with serious illness.” More information can be found here.
