Paul Walker’s Brother, Cody Walker, Joins Nonprofit Charity ROWW

Paul Walker's brother Cody Walker joins nonprofit charity ROWW

In the wake of Paul Walker’s tragic demise, a number of the Fast & Furious star’s professional and personal responsibilities were left unfinished, including a slew of movie projects and, of course, the charitable contributions he made for his non-profit charity, Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW).

Film executives have been frantically searching for veteran actors to replace Paul Walker in the upcoming Hitman movie and The Best of Me. Reports are circulating that Homeland actor Rupert Friend is currently in talks to assume the role of Agent 47, for the upcoming movie of the same name. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it is possible X-Men actor James Marsden will take on the role of Dawson Cole in The Best of Me – a story about a high-school romance that is to be adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel.

Meanwhile, Paul Walker’s nonprofit charity, Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW), has recently announced that Paul’s brother, Cody, will serve as Brand Manager and Paramedic; the news was officially delivered by ROWW through the company’s website and Facebook page. In a recent press release, the organization claimed that Cody signed up to the team to fulfill his brother’s legacy by assisting regions devastated by natural disasters.

ROWW has aided relief efforts all over the world
ROWW has aided relief efforts throughout the United States and all over the rest of the globe.

Founded by Walker in 2010, ROWW was instituted to provide humanitarian aid to various disaster-struck countries across the globe. The California-based team consists of emergency medical technicians, doctors, nurses, paramedics, firefighters and construction workers. In the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake, during 2010, ROWW dispatched their highly skilled volunteers to the region to augment local resources and boost relief efforts. The team has also worked in a number of locations throughout America, as well as Chile, Indonesia and the Philippines. In 2013, alone, ROWW sent medical and construction specialists teams to aid disaster relief endeavors in Colorado, Illinois, Oklahoma and the Philippines.

As a licensed paramedic, Cody has decided to offer his invaluable expertise to ROWW, during future deployments. Cody will be responsible for managing relations with “like-minded brands and individuals” to ensure ROWW continues to evolve. During the press release, Cody took the opportunity to show his appreciation to all those who supported his family following Paul’s death, before going on to explain his motivation for joining ROWW:

“One of the things I always admired about my brother was his genuine desire to help others in need. I am honored to join the ROWW team in fulfilling my brother’s legacy and make sure his spirit and mission lives on.”

Cody also delivered the news on his Facebook page, indicating that everyone has the capacity to do good in the world; he finished off by quoting the previous sentiments of his older brother:

“As Paul would say ‘when you put good will out there, it’s amazing what can be accomplished.'”

Fast & Furious co-star Kurt Russell has recently stated that Paul’s death prompted the Fast & Furious 7 writers to “rewrite” the plotline for the upcoming blockbuster. Russell, who plays Vin Diesel’s onscreen father, recently discussed the development process during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival. The Stargate actor is alleged to have said that the rewriting process has been ongoing, ever since Walker’s death on Nov. 30, 2013. The film, which was originally due for release during this summer, has now been pushed back to April 2015.

Previous reports from The Hollywood Reporter (THR) suggested – based upon information leaked from an undisclosed source – Paul’s Fast & Furious character, Brian O’Conner, was to be retired in the next iteration of the franchise. However, the film’s writer, Chris Morgan, dispelled the rumors during a recent interview with gaming website IGN. Morgan claimed that he was uncertain as to where the rumors had originally stemmed from and claimed, “Everything is still open and on the table.”
