(Meredith) -- 'Jeopardy!' champion James Holzhauer donated $1,109.14 to a Chicago-area pancreatic cancer walk in Alex Trebek's name.
Holzhauer donated to the Lustgarten Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk, which will take place July 14 in Naperville, Illinois, about an hour west of Chicago.
Trebek, the host of 'Jeopardy!,' is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He announced his diagnosis in March and announced he was "near remission" in May.
"Jeopardy!" champion James Holzhauer is donating $10,000 to an educational charity in Nevada, according to the charity.
According to The Chicago Tribune, the amount of $1,109.14 is a reflection of Holzhauer's daughter Natasha's birthday. Holzhauer also left a message "For Alex Trebek and all the other survivors" on the donation website.
On Holzhauer's final episode of 'Jeopardy!,' Trebek thanked Natasha for a handmade card, saying, "I want to express my thanks to your beautiful little daughter, Natasha, for having made this get well card for me. That was very sweet of her."
Holzhauer won 32 games on 'Jeopardy!' and won $2,462,216 -- falling just $58,484 short of matching champ Ken Jennings' all-time record of $2,520,700 in 2004.
