Congrats to Noelle Lambert for being named this year’s L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth National Honoree. Actress Helen Mirren surprised her with the good news on the national television show Extra! tonight. As the national honoree, Noelle will receive $25,000 from L’Oreal Paris for The Born to Run Foundation, which Noelle started after recovering from an accident that resulted in her losing her leg, on top of the $10,000 donation that came with being selected as one of ten Women of Worth. The funding will provide young amputees with specialized athletic prostheses to help them lead active lives.
Noelle thanked her supporters and L’Oreal for the tremendous honor in this video.
Noelle is also training for the Tokyo Paralympics next August that were postponed from 2020 due to the pandemic. She is competing in the 100-meter in Track & Field and holds the U.S. Women’s Paralympic Record in that event.
