Kentucky, Xavier among those participating in #Layup4Lauren challenge (VIDEOS)

The #Layup4Lauren challenged was launched by Lauren Hill on Monday, and she has already gotten some pretty big names to take part.

I’m sure you know the story by now. Lauren is a freshman on the Mount Saint Joseph’s (Division III) basketball team. She’s also battling a terminal brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). The challenge is a way for her to raise awareness for the disease, which has no cure. A way for his life to have a legacy.
