Pedals for Progress’s mission is really to give these people a viable chance of a wonderful life. We certainly concentrate on employment opportunities and healthy transportation alternatives, but sometimes we stray.

In the last shipment of 2013 to Guatemala we included 100 pairs of cleats and 18 used soccer balls. The soccer balls act like large Styrofoam chips protecting the bicycles, and the soccer cleats just fall down between the bikes, taking no space.

Supplying sporting equipment is certainly not the most important thing we do and not something that we will ever do a lot of, but when we can put a smile like this on a young person, how can we not?
