A Personal Message From Our Executive Director

Dear GOTRSD Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to share some important news with you. After much reflection and consideration, I have decided to step down from my role as Executive Director of Girls on the Run San Diego, effective June 14, 2024.

Serving as the Executive Director of GOTRSD has been incredibly rewarding, professionally and personally. Together, we have accomplished significant milestones, from introducing a new curriculum to celebrating our participants at this spring's incredible 5K, all driven by our shared commitment to inspire girls to activate their limitless potential. I am deeply grateful for your unwavering support, dedication, and passion for our cause.

This decision was not made lightly, and comes after a great deal of personal reflection. I am confident in the incredible team at GOTRSD and their ability to continue our important work without interruption. Our Board of Directors is initiating a comprehensive search for a new Executive Director, which you can learn more about here, and I will work closely with them to ensure a smooth and seamless transition. In the coming weeks, I will remain fully engaged in my role to ensure our ongoing projects and initiatives continue to progress as planned.

Thank you for the trust you have placed in me and for the incredible support you have shown to GOTRSD. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together (stay tuned for more about this season's accomplishments in upcoming newsletters!) and look forward to seeing the continued success of GOTRSD in the years to come.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns. I remain deeply committed to our mission and will always be an advocate for the crucially important work that we do.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Natasia de Silva
Executive Director
