In the city-wide event, which featured civilians, police and a full-fledged social media campaign, Miles, dressed as Batkid, got to join Batman in a black Lamborghini as they drove around the city to save people in danger and stop infamous criminals. This beautiful testament to human love and compassion was made possible by 11,000 Make-A-Wish volunteers and the city of San Francisco. The Make-A-Wish organization makes the wishes of children afflicted by life-threatening diseases come true.
