Boneshaker Project works directly in the community to empower kids to feel physically strong from a young age. Through expert coach mentorship and online engagement, we encourage kids to ‘do what moves you,’ feel confident and enjoy healthy lifestyles.

Go outside! Run on a playground, ride a bike, grab a racket, and ‘shake your bones’ to feel healthy and active. This is the lifestyle we inspire our community’s kids to live. In AISD the percentage of overweight and obese students varies widely by school, from from 23.5% to 53.5% according to a 2010 Children’s Optimal Health report. Additionally, obesity rates are disproportionate by race, as African American and Latino rates of obesity are twice as high as other racial groups. Boneshaker Project works directly in the community to reverse these trends by empowering kids to feel physically strong from a young age. Through expert coach mentorship and online engagement, we encourage kids to ‘do what moves you,’ feel confident, and enjoy healthy lifestyles.
