Paul Walker‘s family are carrying on his legacy in a big way.
The late actor’s brother, Cody Walker, and Cody’s wife Felicia spoke to PEOPLE about their new show, Fast: Home Rescue, and how it continues the mission that Paul left behind with his nonprofit, Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW).
Paul, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2013, founded ROWW after the 2010 Haiti earthquake. He visited the country in the wake of the event and came face to face with what Cody calls “the disaster after the disaster,” the period following catastrophes like fires, tornadoes, earthquakes and hurricanes during which affected communities really need the most help.
“Paul’s legacy — and he would say this all the time — was to be good,” says Cody. “His mission was to be a good person and help others, and that’s certainly what Reach Out WorldWide continues to do to this day.”
“It’s hard to believe we’re coming up on nine years since we lost Paul. And yet his organization is still running strong and still helping people. His legacy is alive and well,” he adds.
