BOKS – Building Our Kids’ Success
BOKS is a free program open to students in grades 1st – 5th at HHCA. Students participate in this nationally recognized fitness program twice a week; with the intent to provide children with an additional exercise outlet. The mission of BOKS is “to promote the profound impact of physical activity on a child’s mind, body and community”. BOKS is powered by communities and empowers parents, teachers, schools and local volunteers to give kids a body and brain boost that will set them up for a day of learning. HHCA is pleased to partner with BOKS to offer this program to our school families.
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based positive youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We teach life skills through dynamic, interactive lessons and running games. The program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k running event.
HHCA supports the mission and vision of the Lowcountry Alliance for Healthy Youth in promotion of positive choices for our youth.
