Los Angeles - Paul Walker's legacy "lives on" through his charity.

The Fast and Furious star - who died in a car crash last November - established Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) to provide relief in areas affected by natural disasters and his younger brother Cody Walker thinks the late actor would be "stoked" to know the organisation is still going strong.

Cody said: "ROWW continues to be, to function, to help others even after our primary contributor, my brother.

"I know he would be so stoked to know that. ROWW changed his life, and he was so proud of it.

"This year has been very challenging but also extremely rewarding. ROWW would like to thank all of our supporters who have gotten us through this very difficult year. Thanks to you, Paul's legacy lives on through ROWW."

Since Paul's passing, the charity has completed a holiday toy drive, stuffed backpacks ready for children returning to school in September, deployed a team to Mayflower, Arkansas, to assist after a tornado and sent people on a medical mission to the Philippines to provide aid after Typhoon Haiyan.

Cody told E! News: "These missions are truly life changing for all involved. I'm so proud to be a part of this."

And when asked what Cody wants people to learn from the Furious 7 star's life, he said not to be too cool and to "live life to the fullest".

He said: "Just live your life to the fullest. Laugh a lot, love and find your true happiness. Remember that no matter how cool you think you may be, you're not cool enough to look down on anyone...ever."

"I am so lucky to have had him as a big brother." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy. Should you wish to report a comment for editorial review, please do so by clicking the 'Report Comment' button to the right of each comment.
