In Malacatan, Guatemala, one young woman came crawling into the PET distribution site on her hands and knees, a pair of sandals to protect her hands. She received a PET and gave us a determined smile.
We saw one old PET, Rodolfo Cu’s 4-year-old model, in a village east of Coban, Guatemala. He uses his PET to take bananas and chocolate to the town square where he sells chocobananas. But his old PET had a broken brake and the front tire was badly worn. He received a new PET the next morning which he planned to crank the 19 kilometers back to his home village.

“Jacob Lee Stewart, C Squad 3rd Gen gives a PET (Personal Transport) cart to a happy recipient at the Agape In Action (AIA) dorm in Quiche, Guatemala. The World Race put together 10 of these PETs and searched out those in need in the local town square and market. A picture is worth a thousand words!
