October’s Female Athlete of the Month: Alexa Lawanson

Alexa Lawanson is a spirited young lady who has really come out of her shell since joining Special Olympics Colorado. At the young age of three, Alexa was introduced to our program through her preschool, The Rise School of Denver, and has been cartwheeling through life ever since. Now, in her fourth year of the program, Alexa has blossomed into a loving, caring and outgoing athlete, who her mother says is “quite a ham!” She’s no longer the quiet and shy girl she once was, but has really found herself and her confidence through Special Olympics Colorado and our Young Athletes program. Congratulations, Alexa, for being October’s Female Athlete of the Month!
