(CNN) – The “Jeopardy!” champion who won more than $2 million is honoring the host of the game show.
James Holzhauer donated a portion of his winnings to a Chicago-area pancreatic cancer walk in Alex Trebek’s name.
An organizer for the 2019 Naperville Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk said he sent her a donation for more than $1,100.
With the donation, he wrote the message, “For Alex Trebek and all the other survivors.”
He has since said he’s in near-remission.
