Date:11/15/2013

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2013

5-year-old Miles celebrated the end of his battle with leukemia today, and over 13,000 San Franciscans joined him. Make-A-Wish made it happen by granting his wish to be Batman, and the young caped crusader battled the Riddler, rescued a damsel in distress, and freed beloved San Francisco Giants mascot, Lou Seal, from the Penguin. Link to photos and captions below.
