'Batman' makes stop at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital in Charleston
It was no ordinary Friday at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital in Charleston. A man named Lenny Robinson climbed out his 1966 replica Batmobile, donned his cape and tried to change the lives of sick children.
Robinson dressed up like Batman on Friday, Aug. 16, to spread good cheer and provide some positive vibes to sick children at the hospital.
He's been visiting sick children in hospitals in the Baltimore area since 2001, and is now venturing out on a nationwide road trip to make kids feel better. And while Robinson's sudden appearance is usually a surprise for young patients, it does make a difference. "It's kind of weird having Batman come in, but I liked his costume. It was more authentic than usual. It makes me a little happier I guess, better then just sitting in the bed," said Zion Bourne, a patient at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital.
The superhero is making more appearances in the area before heading to his next stop. Kids will have the chance to see him over the weekend at Summerfest in Charleston.
