            var isValid = false;
            for(var i=0;i<checkBoxes.length;i++)
            {
                if(checkBoxes[i].type=="checkbox" && checkBoxes[i].id.indexOf("CheckBoxList1")!=0)
                {
                    isValid = true;
                    break;
                }
            }

Sorry the script should be like this
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function Validate()
        {
            var checkBoxes = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
            var isValid = false;
            for(var i=0;i<checkBoxes.length;i++)
            {
                if(checkBoxes[i].type=="checkbox" && checkBoxes[i].id.indexOf("CheckBoxList1")==0 && checkBoxes[i].checked)
                {
                    isValid = true;
                    break;
                }
            }
            if(!isValid)
            {
                alert("Please select atleast one value");
            }
            return isValid;
        }
    </script>
