The only things #SFBatKid can't save me from are my emotions right now.

This is the hero we need, deserve, want, and are barely avoiding happy tears at work over. Miles Scott is a 5-year-old kid from Tulelake, CA with leukemia who was diagnosed at 18 months and just finally battled it into remission. He thought he was flying to San Francisco just to pick up a Batman costume. What he didn't know was that the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the City of San Francisco, and literally thousands of volunteers turned the city into Gotham with a day full of capers for BatKid to solve. Someone even donated Lamborghinis for the day to be turned into Batmobiles. The San Francisco Chronicle is publishing a special edition with the headline "BatKid Saves The City!" Across the nation, many, many more are tuning in to live feeds and following the hashtag #SFBatKid to catch all the updates.
