            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;

        }
