Remembering Paul Walker

Brother of the late "Fast and Furious" star is using Reach Out WorldWide to accelerate relief efforts in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico after they were devastated by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Vin Diesel and Cody Walker are teaming up to help hurricane victims by raising money for Paul Walker's Reach Out WorldWide charity.

ROWW is a disaster relief nonprofit that Paul created in 2010 with a purpose to help those who need it most when a natural disaster strikes. The organization is currently working to accelerate relief efforts in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico after Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma devastated the states earlier this month.

"We send teams all over the world. We've been very busy this year with hurricanes," Cody said of ROWW. "It's been a horrible year in that regard and without your support, we couldn't continue Paul's legacy through his organization."

Cody joined the organization in 2014 as a brand manager and paramedic a year after his late brother was killed in a car accident. Although he just returned to Los Angeles from helping the citizens of Houston, he joined Diesel on Facebook Live Sunday night to announce they teamed up with Microsoft and Xbox to create a one of a kind gaming system that will be auctioned off at their annual Game4Paul fundraiser.

The gaming system was modeled after the 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse that was first seen when Paul drove it in the beginning of the first "Fast and Furious" movie in 2001. In honor of their late friend, the cast also plans on signing the Xbox in hopes to raise more money for ROWW before the big event that will also sell other "cool prizes."

Fans and supporters can go to game4paul.com before the event to donate and purchase a Game4Paul3 t-shirt that has the same design as the Xbox.

The annual celebration that includes his family, friends, ROWW and Xbox coming together to remember Paul and the charity he founded will feature a six-hour live-streamed event full of celebrity guests, games, stunts, comedy, personal stories, live auctions and more. This year's event will be live-streamed from the Microsoft Lounge in Los Angeles on October 1 at 11 a.m. PST.

"Just as Vin and as someone who is proud of the saga in so many ways, to see this happening, to see Cody continue the dreams of his brother warms my heart and I can't tell you how proud I know Pablo is right now and it's just a very, very special thing so we came out tonight to get ready for next Sunday and this very important event," Diesel said.
