(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 Alex Trebek’s name.
An organizer for the 2019 Naperville Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk said Holzhauer sent a donation of more than $11,000.
With the donation, Holzhauer wrote the message – “For Alex Trebek and all the other survivors.”
Back in March, Trebek shared with the public that is battling stage four pancreatic cancer.
Trebek has since stated he’s in near-remission.
