Aaron Rodgers, QB for the Green Bay Packers, helped cancer research by winning Celebrity Jeopardy.

The Packers QB took on and destroyed astronaut Mark Kelly and Kevin O’Leary of Shark Tank to win $50,000 for childhood cancer research, aka the MACC Fund.

As for Rodgers, he was ecstatic to be on the game show: “It was a bucket list deal for me.”

And to think, this all happened by mistake. Originally, Jeopardy called his girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn, to do it and she turned them down.

“She was like, ‘I don’t really want to this,'” Rodgers told ESPN. “I was like, ‘I will do that! Tell your people I will do it!'”

Now for those that do not know, the MACC Fund attempts “to find a cure for childhood cancer and related blood disorders by providing critical funding for research.” So needless to say, Rodgers got to complete one of his dreams while helping a noteworthy organization.
