A pair of Bengals, Xavier men's basketball team answer Lauren Hill's challenge

Monday, Lauren Hill, a freshman basketball player at Mount St. Joseph College in Cincinnati, began a movement to raise awareness for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a rare brain tumor that she suffers from.

The movement, called "Layup 4 Lauren," requires the participant to spin around five times and shoot a layup with their non-dominant hand. If you make the layup, you challenge three more people to do it. If the you miss, you have to donate $10 to "The Cure Starts Now."

Wednesday, two of the people she challenged took the opportunity, and another team did as well.

First up was Andy Dalton and Andy Whitworth of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Next up was the Xavier men's basketball team.

You can donate and find more information about the movement here.
