49ers players tweet about #SFBatKid and Make-A-Wish Foundation

If you're not on social media, you might have missed one of the cooler stories of the year. Miles is a 5-year old from Northern California who is battling Leukemia. His disease is thankfully in remission, but in the meantime, he is getting the experience of a lifetime thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. You can donate to Make-A-Wish at their website (among other ways of giving back), although it appears to be down right now. I imagine the traffic it is receiving today is unbelievable.

Miles' wish was to become a super hero, in this case "Bat Kid". With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, his dream is coming true on the streets of San Francisco. I can't even begin to do the experience justice, but the San Jose Mercury News had a solid rundown of the day.

The general gist of the experience is that Miles has been able to save a damsel in distress, foil a robbery by The Riddler and save Lou Seal (the Giants' mascot) after its abduction by The Penguin. The event will finish up at City Hall, where Mayor Ed Lee and the San Francisco police commissioner will present Miles with a key to the city. You can watch a live feed from CSN Bay Area as they follow Miles on his adventure. And again, you can donate to Make-A-Wish at their website (once it's back up and running).

If that's not cool enough, the San Francisco Chronicle is publishing a special edition of the paper tomorrow celebrating Bat Kid's exploits:

In case you missed any of this, here is some Instagram of Bat Kid saving a damsel in distress after she was tied up by The Riddler

Some 49ers players have tweeted about the event. My favorite has to be this one from Anquan Boldin:

Kevin McDermott also tweeted about it:
