James Franco gave a gripping performance when he took on the role of a Colorado adventurer named Aron Ralston in the Oscar-nominated film 127 Hours. And while Ralston’s true life story has inspired millions, it looks like he’s continuing that trend of inspiration by donating $125,000 to an environmental group!

Last week, Ralston was a contestant on the NBC game show “Minute to Win it,” where he won $125k, all of which will be donated to Wilderness Workshop, a conservation group that aims to preserve the natural beauty of the White River National Forest in Colorado.

127 Hours was based on Ralston’s harrowing ordeal in a Utah canyon where he was forced to amputate his own arm in order to survive a fall that left him pinned under a boulder. The story and subsequent book titled Between a Rock and a Hard Place inspired Danny Boyle to create the film, which was nominated for six Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor (though it ended up not taking any awards home, unfortunately).

We’re continually inspired by Ralston’s story and his success thus far, way to be awesome! Check out a clip from the show below!
