Cody Walker Takes Over Reach Out WorldWide

Paul Walker may be gone, but his charitable organization will live on thanks to his brother.

Paul Walker left behind not only a grieving family when he died, but a robust charity that helped many — and it will not die with him.

The actor's brother Cody Walker announced today that he will take over as head of Reach Out WorldWide, the charity that the Fast & Furious star ran with Roger Rodas before the friends perished in a fiery crash in November 2013.

"My family and I truly appreciate the support we have received during this difficult time," Cody wrote. "One of the many things I admired about my brother was his genuine desire to help others in need. As many of you know, in 2010 @paulwalker founded @reachoutww, a disaster relief organization. It is with great honor that I have decided to join the ROWW team as Brand Manager. I look forward to working with like-minded individuals and partners to ensure ROWW continues to aid those in need in the years to come.

"As Paul would say, 'When you put good will out there, it's amazing what can be accomplished.' We can all make a difference in this world and I am honored to join the ROWW team in fulfilling my brother's legacy and ensure that the good my brother did lives on."

Walker and Rodas were attending a fundraiser for ROWW when the crash occurred. A coroner's report found that the Porsche Carrera GT was traveling at speeds over 100 MPH when it hit a tree and burst into flames, killing both men almost immediately.

My all time fav guy from Hollywood! He is never a B list actor! He is so humble, so true to all... Hollywood is blind for not noticing him since! He's a much better actor and greater person than lots from the Industry to learn from... Wish I get to know him... for those who did, you are all blessed! RIP! My Great One! Well done Cody!
