BOKS and Special Olympics have partnered together to get more kids active and improve their physical and emotional well-being, by offering youth with and without intellectual disabilities (ID) opportunities to be more active and establish a lifelong commitment to health and fitness. BOKS’ evidence-based programming supports the Special Olympics’ mission to create a more inclusive world by getting children of all ages and abilities active.
What is BOKS?
BOKS is a free physical activity program for kids of all ages and abilities.
The BOKS program was designed to provide more opportunities for kids from early childhood through high school to get moving throughout the day with movement breaks, games, activities and more!
Kids are not getting enough physical activity.
Less than one-quarter (24%) of children 6 to 17 years of age participate in 60 minutes of physical activity every day – the daily recommended amount according to the CDC.
