THEY may only be young, but twins Ruben and Elena Evans-Guillen have certainly stamped their mark on their community by rising to an incredible charity challenge.

The eight-year old siblings were presented with the Junior Charity Champions award at the Warrington Guardian Inspiration Awards in honour of the remarkable fundraising work they’ve done as ambassadors for the Warrington and Halton Hospitals’ Charity.

The St Peter’s Catholic Primary School pupils both have ADHD but following their Running4 Dr Ozzy challenge, they’ve proved that boundless energy can be channelled into making a positive change.

The dynamic duo ran 100km and raised more than £15,000 for the charity’s Making Waves project, a scheme aimed at building a new outdoor play area on the children's ward at Warrington and Halton Hospital.

Dad Mark Evans-Guillen explained: “My two are very hyperactive kids as they have ADHD, so family life is geared around doing as many activities as possible. They started out doing a 5k run where they did really well, and so we thought we’d continue this to raise funds for a fantastic award.

“We’re amazed, completely overwhelmed and so humble to be here with so many inspirational people.

“I just want to say thank you to all the people who have helped us along our incredible 100km journey – the charity itself, and all the people who have wonderfully donated to the cause – they’re all remarkable.

“I’m so overwhelmed by the children’s achievement really. It’s been absolutely incredible to see them on stage, collecting this award, I am so proud of them.”

In typical generous style the twins said they will share part of their prize – a large tin of chocolates – with their classmates.
