LOS ANGELES, May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Micro-Mobility is the maker of the brightly colored Swiss-designed scooters that are seen everywhere around the world. The U.S. distributor of Micro-Mobility, Micro Kickboard aka 'Micro', is the host of National Scooter Day, a nationwide campaign to highlight the benefits of scooter riding and encourage families to get outside and scoot. Celebrated during National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, National Scooter Day promotes scooting as a fuel-free, eco-friendly, healthy and safe way to travel. Today, Micro Kickboard invites families across the country to participate by being active and riding scooters to school, work, the park, a friend's house, or just around the neighborhood.
Micro is celebrating by giving away 1,000 children's helmets FREE - 500 on their website, www.microkickboard.com today, followed by 500 to attendees of Great Big Family Play Day, hosted by SoCal Mom's in California on May 22nd, 2016.
Micro said scooting is all about getting from A to B safely, while having fun, and they couldn't think of a better way to celebrate National Scooter Day than to encourage helmet-wearing by giving them away free.
Owner Geoff Hawksworth says, 'Many kids use Micro for the commute to school - we've heard from parents who say their children ride literally hundreds of miles a year, and they love how it helps get the kids outside and exercising, while helping to improve air quality.'
Even adults are now using scooters - mostly in urban centers where transport to work can involve "micro" distances, such as short commutes to the rail, bus or subway station. Scooters work well because they are foldable and lightweight. They also can be ridden on sidewalks, useful for those who like to get places in a hurry but are wary of riding in the street.
Micro's helmet campaign supports their #1 tip for safe scooting (in addition to buying the best brand of scooter) which is to wear a safety approved ASTM-certified helmet.
