Walker's charity going 'fast and furious' Sunday in Chanhassen


Fans of actor Paul Walker and cars will cruise the south metro Sunday in honor of the charity he founded three years ago. Walker and a friend were killed in a Los Angeles car crash last Saturday.

The Associated Press reports drivers will leave from the AutoMotorPlex parking lot in Chanhassen at 1 p.m. and end at the Mall of America in Bloomington at 2:30 p.m.

Drivers will have memorial decals and ribbons on their vehicles.

The "Fast and Furious" star founded Reach Out WorldWide to help victims of natural disasters. All proceeds from the drive will go to the charity.

Eonline.com reports ROWW has been inundated with donations since Walker's death. The outpouring of love "has been overwhelming," according to J.D. Dorfman, operations manager for ROWW. "People have offered to hold car rallies to raise money to keep Paul's legacy alive. We have received on average 20 calls an hour wanting to help."
