You'll recall that I shared an amazing story this week: A study revealed that participation in the Make-A-Wish program may give children better quality of life and reduce hospital visits and healthcare costs. More good news about the program: Batkid is in remission five years after his crime fighting wish was granted.
You'll recall five years ago, BatKid raced around San Francisco in a Batmobile defusing a bomb and saving the city from a supervillian.
Thousands of residents joined with city leaders, police and firefighters to stage the grand scale Make-A-Wish dream of the young leukemia patient. In case you don’t remember, even ISS astronauts and President Obama cheered little Miles on.
Miles Scott is now 10-years-old and in full remission from cancer, living with his family in northern California's Siskiyou County. Today, Miles enjoys science and robotics and plays baseball, and helps on the family farm.
BatKid's adventures inspired people around the world and proved a major boon for the Make-A-Wish Foundation which continues to fulfill the dreams of sick children. To learn more about Miles' story, check out the film produced from that day, "Batkid Begins."
And to support Make-A-Wish in Iowa, be sure to attend Jolly Holiday Lights which is returning to Adventureland again this year.
