Noelle Lambert is an inspiring young woman and standout athlete. She recently graduated from UMass Lowell with a criminal justice degree and played Division 1 Lacrosse for the River Hawks. After a stunning freshman year, Noelle suffered a life-changing injury while involved in a horrendous moped accident that resulted in the amputation of her left leg above the knee. Always one to be positive, Lambert never let the injury defeat her and she made her return to the lacrosse field 18 months later.
In 2018, Noelle founded The Born to Run Foundation, a nonprofit which aims to provide child amputees with a specific prosthetic that will allow them to run again. Noelle hopes she can grow the foundation so it is able to donate three to five prosthetics each year. Lambert is currently training to run the 100-meter dash at the 2020 Paralympics Games in Tokyo.
