Batkid Begins

It all began with a new superhero who rallied the entire world as he confronted evildoers in San Francisco. Today, Batkid is a symbol of everything that is right and good with the world.

New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. are releasing Batkid Begins, a documentary film by Dana Nachman that takes you back to November 15, 2013: the day Make-A-Wish® Greater Bay Area and thousands of volunteers turned San Francisco into Gotham City.

People around the globe now know that Batkid is the alter-ego of Miles, a 5-year-old who is in remission from leukemia. Though Miles is unmasked, everyone who heard his story still stands in awe.

We're glad that Batkid brought you to wish.org. But there's something that every Batkid fan needs to know: Make-A-Wish does this every single day. Somewhere in the United States, volunteers grant a wish every 37 minutes. But if we're to grant the wish of every eligible child, like Miles, we'll need to grant a wish every 19 minutes.

We need people like you to help us bring life-changing wishes to all the kids who need to replace fear with optimism. To break the cycle of medical treatments and stress. To be a game-changer in their struggles to live with, or even overcome, their medical conditions.
