Batkid will be back in San Francisco this weekend for Make-A-Wish fundraiser

Dec. 6 (UPI) -- It’s the same Bat-time, same Bat-channel for the California boy who saved San Francisco last month during a heartwarming stint as “Batkid,” as 5-year-old Miles Scott returns to the city this weekend for a Make-A-Wish fundraiser with the SFPD.

Scott fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming Batman on Nov. 15 thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation, and spent the day dashing around San Francisco in a Batmobile saving the city from a series of staged crime-fighting events involving villains like the Penguin and Riddler.

Police Chief Greg Suhr, who played Commissioner Gordon to Scott’s Batkid back in November, will be reunited with the tiny crime-fighter on Saturday at Brave the Bay, a fundraiser where participants will do a 5K walk/run, swim in the San Francisco Bay and then compete in a cable car pulling contest.

Suhr and other police officers are taking part in the event and Scott will start them off when the 5K begins at 8:30 a.m. at Aquatic Park. The goal of the event is to raise $75,000 for Make-A-Wish.

In other positive news, Scott’s leukemia is in remission and he was able to end his chemotherapy treatments in June.
