National Scooter Day is 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. On May 19th, 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.
