‘Jeopardy!’ Legend James Holzhauer Donates Portion Of Winnings To Cancer Walk In Alex Trebek’s Name

Photo: Sony / ABCJames Holzhauer is not done leaving his mark just yet. The man won $2,462,216 over the course of 32 straight games on the show. Now he is donating a portion of his winnings to a cancer walk in host Alex Trebek’s name. Trebek is currently battling stage-four pancreatic cancer. The money is specifically going towards pancreatic cancer research.Holzhauer says he pledges $1,109.14 to the cause “for Alex Trebek and all the other survivors.” The donation listing is live on the site for the 2019 Naperville Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk in Naperville, Illinois.Learn more about the official cancer walk eventPhoto: Sony / ABC
The official event website even has its own page acknowledging the generous donation. “Former Jeopardy! champion and Naperville native James Holzhauer made a generous donation to the Naperville Walk, raising disease awareness and additional research funding,” the website says.“James recently enjoyed an incredible 32-game winning streak on Jeopardy! and made this donation in honor of Alex Trebek’s fight against pancreatic cancer. Thank you also to our walk leader Ann Zediker for reaching out to James and securing his support for the Naperville Walk!”Photo: Kyle EspeletaThe number of the donation is significant, because it’s Holzhauer’s 4-year-old daughter’s birthday. Holzhauer was made aware of the event by fundraiser Ann Zediker, who also lost her father to pancreatic cancer in 2010. She was the one who asked the Jeopardy! champ to attend the walk.He regretfully had to say he could not be there for the walk. But instead, he gave a generous donation! His daughter even made a get well soon card for Trebek. How sweet!
Photo: Cancer Walk Event websiteThe 78-year-old game show host has been battling stage-four pancreatic cancer, which generally has a grim prognosis. You’re lucky if you can catch it in its early stages. Thankfully, Trebek has updated us all with the fact that 50% of his tumors have shrunk. He also reports that he is in “near remission.”Of course, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s completely good to go. The 78-year-old still needs to go through several more rounds of chemotherapy, but knowing that some of his tumors have shrunk by that much is very reassuring! Despite needing more rounds of chemotherapy until he reaches the point of remission, Trebek is extremely happy with how far he’s come!Photo: Sony / ABCTrebek credits all the well wishes from friends and family around the world for his ability to make such great progress.
