Katie Hoyle began as a volunteer with World T.E.A.M. at the 2016 Adventure Team Challenge, and was immediately hooked. Impressed by the inclusivity and teamwork displayed in Colorado, she continued to be involved with World T.E.A.M., working on Face of America Gettysburg and taking on a lead role in the planning of the 2017 Adventure Team Challenge. After again volunteering at Face of America in 2018, she decided it was time for her to transition to an athlete. She registered for the 2018 Adventure Team Challenge as member of the “Grapes of Raft” team. The event changed her life. “My teammates supported me through the event, and encouraged me when I was convinced I couldn’t do something,” Katie said. “Facing my fear and wiping away my tears, I owned that rappel! This is just a small part of why we were named ‘Most Supportive’ team.” Katie works for an association in Washington, D.C. as a Program Manager. She shares her story whenever she can, hoping to encourage more people to become engaged with World T.E.A.M.
