Alex, what is the amount you’re giving to the University of Ottawa?
Answer: $10 Million dollars.
That’s how much game show host Alex Trebek has raised for his alma mater. Last month, the 79-year-old donated $1.2 million to his former school. Some of the money will support his distinguished lecture series.The rest will go to the Alex Trebek Innovation and Challenge Fund that finances student-led projects aimed at bringing about positive social change and healthy lifestyles. Trebek was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March. World Pancreatic Cancer Day is November 21.
