President Obama on Friday sent a message to five-year-old Miles Scott, aka “Batkid.”

“Way to go, Miles. Way to save Gotham,” said Obama in a short video message posted online.

With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Scott, who is in remission with leukemia, was able to fulfill his dream of being a costumed superhero.

Thousands of volunteers helped turn his hometown of San Francisco into “Gotham City” and watched Scott in a Batkid outfit, accompanied by an adult Batman.

The Images of Scott went viral on the internet and lawmakers also tweeted their support.
