He is an 8-year-old who defied doctors, and walked to school - even though he had been told he would spend the rest of his life in a wheel chair. Today, Evan Whitton from Silsden has been presented with a new challenge - to bring the Paralympic flame to Yorkshire.
Evan has Cerebral Palsy and went to America for an operation that helped him to walk - the determination that got him through hours of painful physiotherapy impressed games organisers and led to him being chosen as a Paralympic Ambassador.
Victoria Whittam has his story so far.
