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.
