Active Kids = Active Minds
(an initiative of the Reebok Foundation) 

Research shows physical activity positively impacts physical, mental and social health.  According to Dr. John Ratey, author of the book, Spark,  “exercise is Miracle-Gro for the brain.  It is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.  Before school exercise has been shown to help increase the release of the brain-derived neurotropic factor which supports learning and memory function, also increasing new brain cell growth-essentially ramping up our children’s brains to learn.”

Boks Mission:  “To promote the profound impact of physical activity on a child’s mind, body, and community.”

Goal:

  • §  Use play as a physical activity to jump start our kids’ brains for better learning
  • §  Increase opportunities for kids to be physically active
  • §  Create healthier, life-long habits
