We are partnering with BOKS, an initiative of The Reebok Foundation, to provide an immersive experience on physical activity and its benefits. We believe that children who exercise regularly do better in school. The BOKS, before school activity, program is already running in many Boston area schools. The event is FREE but registration is required to attend. Here is the press release for the event.
The BOKS before-school physical activity program is designed to jump start kids’ brains and prepare them for a day of learning. The program combines play, physical activity, team games and short talks on nutrition to create healthier habits for children to achieve life-long fitness.
