CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -  Mount St. Joseph University's women's basketball player, Lauren Hill, had a very special Sunday.

Sunday was Hill's first ever game playing for the Mount St. Joseph women's basketball team. She was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last year that has left her with only months to live.

Hill started a lay up challenge to raise money for research into the brain cancer that has left her with only months to live.

Although she's right-handed, Hill has to shoot with her left hand now because the tumor has affected her coordination. Also, she can't move her head side-to-side because it makes her dizzy.

Since then, many local athletes and teams have participated in the challenge.

Three members of the Harlem Globetrotters put their own "spin" on the #Layup4Lauren Challenge Sunday to help raise awareness for The Cure Starts Now.

Down the road in Lexington, members of the University of Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team took the challenge.

Check out the video above to see FOX19 NOW's Lindsey Wopschall and Jessica Brown take the challenge! 

Tickets for the 2:00 p.m. game were sold out within the hour of them going on sale.
