After entering the wakeboarding market six months ago, highlighted by the signing of Shaun Murray, HDX Hydration Mix would now like to welcome 21-year-old Alexa Score to the team. This Minnesota native now lives and rides in Orlando, Florida, and tours the country on the Queen Of Wake Tour where she finished her rookie season this year in 9th place.
Alexa’s road to this point has not been an easy one. Five years ago at age 16, she was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. She was placed on oral chemotherapy, which she still takes today, even though Alexa has only a trace of Leukemia left in her blood. Alexa wants others to know that diseases like hers can be defeated, and inspiring others is the main focus of her wakeboarding career. Plus, she loves being on the water more than anything else.
“Ever since I was a kid, our family was always on the lake,” Alexa said. “It will always be a part of me and I live for days on the water with my family and friends.”
Now leading and promoting a healthy lifestyle, Alexa took a liking to HDX over all the other drinks with a big presence in the sport.
“HDX is breaking the mold in hydration, and I’m pumped to have the opportunity to hop onboard,” Alexa said. “It feels great to be a part of something you genuinely enjoy and believe in, not to mention work with people you look up to. To be on a team with Shaun Murray is incredible and I can’t wait to team up with him and HDX on some exciting projects.”
Alexa’s five-year anniversary of her diagnosis will be on December 1, 2011 and she is hosting a charity event called “Celebrating Life” to benefit the LIVESTRONG Organization. For more on this event, including ways to donate, visit Alexa’s Facebook athlete page at facebook.com/AlexaScore.
