Since that time Kate has made her, it has not undermined her determi- nation and spirit to lead a normal life. Kate's Kourage "Orange Out" was organized by the WWG volleyball team as a community service project. A thousand raffle tickets were sold for $10.00 a piece, and over 70 prizes were donated for the benefit. Prior to that over 550 Whopper meals were sold and consumed by hungry partici- pants. During the game fans decked the gym in a sea of orange, many wore Kate's Kourage orange t-shirts with Kate's Kourage on the front and a quote she once heard on the back -- "Don't tell me the sky's the limit, when there are footprints on the moon." If you haven't guessed by now orange is Kate's favorite color.
