In the words of Roads To Rome & UnETHical Cupids Co-Founder Joe Powell:
Noelle Lambert is a para-athlete, member of the US Paralympic Team, and founder of The Born to Run Foundation. She also happens to be one of my closest family friends.
I’ve known the Lamberts my entire life. I grew up with her older brother and on my wedding day he stood by my side as a groomsman. Noelle was always the cool little sister who would hang out with the boys. She was, and is, incredibly athletic, mentally strong, and truly hilarious.
When she suffered her moped accident in 2016 many of us were devastated for her because we knew how important playing sports were to her. We thought the accident might mean the end of her competing, but it turns out, it was only the beginning.
Noelle refused to let the accident define who she was or the person she would become. She was gifted with a specialized prosthetic and went on to become the first above-knee amputee to play Division-1 college lacrosse, and she founded The Born to Run Foundation which provides specialized prosthetics to young amputees (insurance doesn’t cover the costs of running prosthetics and they can be extremely expensive).
Watching Noelle strive and achieve greatness on and off the field of competition has been joyful and inspiring. I’ve watched for years as she and The Born to Run Foundation have completely revolutionized the lives of young amputees by donating them specialized prosthetics. And now I’m in a position to help her and her foundation continue their mission and continue to make positive changes in the lives of young amputees.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting the Born To Run Foundation to help allow young adults and children to once again run, play sports, and lead fun, fulfilling, and active lives.
Thanks for your time!
