A woman in West Virginia who went viral after a video showed her returning her cart to a cart corral in the middle of a torrential downpour was recently rewarded by Walmart for her good deed.

According to WCHS in West Virginia, Sue Johnson was presented with free online grocery pick up from the store as a thank you for going above and beyond as a customer to return her cart. Johnson told WCHS that her actions weren’t anything special, but Walmart says they wanted to do something to pay Johnson back.

The free online pick-up will allow Johnson to pick up her groceries at the store once a week for an entire year. Johnson was also given a special trophy with a golden cart on top that names her “A Walmart Legend.”

Johnson says that the weather the day of the video was the worst she’s ever returned a cart in.
