Portland Ore – Portland’s 18 year old Avi Gupta was the winner of Jeopardy’s 2019 Teen Tournament. That’s when he learned of the cancer diagnosis of show host Alex Trebek.
Avi is donating over ten thousand of his winnings to the Knight Cancer Institute. He’s also serving as an inspiration for others to do the same.
Knight Cancer Institute head Dr Brian Druker is so happy to learn that Avi wants his donation to go to early detection that he’s decided to match Avi’s donation.
