The documentary about a 5-year-old leukemia patient who stole the hearts of San Francisco and the world when he became Batkid for a day, premieres Wednesday night in the city where it all began.
Much of the bill came from the big San Francisco Civic Center finale, where 5-year-old Miles Scott was given a key to the city.
San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said Monday, “It was really unbelievable. The best part about it is, although the little guy had to get sick to get better … there was no catastrophe, nobody had to die for all these people to show up to spectacularly support his victory.”
The actor said the way people came together to help a 5-year-old boy battling leukemia be “Batkid” for a day was “fantastic”…
San Francisco 49ers stars — and even coach Jim Harbaugh — all gave shoutouts to 5-year-old Miles Scott. The San Francisco Giants and Oakland Raiders also cheered him, along with Stanford’s baseball team among many others.
