Kaheem's Superhero Wish: Maryland boy gets superhero wish for DC wish day

Image 1 of 30

With some help from "The Superhero Council," Kaheem's wish to be a superhero is came true. FOX 5 DC partnered with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic to make it happen--and we've got plenty of help from around the nation's capital area.

At 10:45 a.m. Kaheem completed MISSION #1! He saved Santa from the National Harbor Ferris Wheel with Tucker as his sidekick! Watch it all unfold below:

From the Nation Harbor he headed to the US Capitol, and received a special message from Speaker Paul Ryan. Watch below:

Since all superheros need a little down time, Kaheem took a nap, but was then energized to head out on his next mission - to capture the Grinch and stop him from stealing all the presents at the National Theater!

Kaheem's FINAL mission ended at the Newseum where he rescued the D.C. sports mascots from the second floor balcony! Thank you Kaheem for saving D.C.!

He had a busy schedule--but thank you for following along live! All day long we had Kaheem on FOX 5 News Morning, Good Day DC and FOX 5 News at 5. We also stream Kaheem's special day live on fox5dc.com, the FOX 5 DC app, and the FOX 5 DC Facebook page - so be sure to go check out the posts if you missed them while they were live!

Don't forget to post your photos and well-wishes for Kaheem on our social media pages, or tag us--and use the hashtag #KaheemSavesDC:
