It’s been about a week since San Francisco was transformed into Gotham City to let 5-year-old Miles Cross enjoy being superhero for a day.

Miles is in remission from Leukemia and was granted his wish by Make-A-Wish.

The city of San Francisco spent about $105,000 on the event, and it was broadcast in 117 countries, according to Mashable.

According to Mashable, his family is now launching a fund in his name to help others facing similar battles.

The “Batkid Fund” will benefit the Ronald McDonald House, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.
