Proceeds from the Rails to Trails Race will be donated to the Watertown, MN BIO Girls Program. The run is sponsored by the Rails to Trails Committee and will be run by volunteer parents of girls participating in BIO Girls.

BIO stands for Beautiful, Inside and Out. We are showing young girls how to build self-worth based on their values, talents, philanthropy and individuality, not how they look. We are on a mission to build the self-esteem of girls through empowerment of self and service to others. BIO Girls is a 12-session program proven to improve self-esteem, emotional well-being and physical well-being of participants by combining faith-based life-skills curriculum, mentoring and physical activity. Girls currently in grades 2-6 of all abilities are welcome to participate in BIO Girls. Participants receive 20 hours of programming dedicated to self-esteem enhancement.
