FOUNDERS

story

Inspired to get her own kids moving and boost their academic performance, BOKS launched in October 2009 when founder Kathleen Tullie rallied a small-but-dedicated group of passionate moms armed with a mission, a simple idea and whistles. These moms were the first volunteers of what would become a nationwide movement.

Today, Kathleen and her teamwork alongside Reebok have grown BOKS to more than 1,200 schools and counting in 48 states and six countries.
