BATKID BEGIN – The story of Miles Scott

If you don’t know MIles Scott he is a little kid that got diagnosed with leukemia in 2010. And luckily he was able to get the better of this terrible disease that kill so many of our loved ones every year.

Because of this his parents submitted Miles’ story to the Make-a-Wish Foundation that really do an amazing job in trying to help kids forget, even if it is just for one day, the fact that the are/ were going through this life crippling sickness.

Now Miles’ greatest ever wish was to be Batman….not much different from you or I, but what happened after that is the REAL story. To help Miles get the day he deserves, a plea was sent out on social media to see if they could get a few hundred volunteers as the plan was set out, to have Miles help Batman fight crime in a few organised scenarios.

The response they received was astounding….more than 12 000 people agreed to take part in the event. And from here the magic started.

So on the day Miles was told he was just going to visit San Francisco to pick up a costume so he could dress like Batman instead, he found himself to be the sidekick helper to an actor dressed as the superhero. His younger brother was dressed as Batman’s sidekick Robin. While he was watching a local TV news broadcast in the family’s hotel room, when the broadcast was interrupted by a flash announcement from San Francisco police chief Greg Suhr appealing for help from Batkid.

From there we was picked up in a black Lamborghini and with the help of a police escort was off to save a damsel in distress, stop the Riddler from robbing the bank and finally caught the Penguin. To top off this wonderful tale, he was given the key to the city and even received a video message from the US President himself.

This great story can now be seen in the documentary “Batkid Begins” that will be realased on June 26 and I urge you all to go and see it. It looks like the feel-good move of the year…Below I added the trailer… And I dare you not to let it hit you right in the feelings..
