OUR CHARITY OF CHOICE
Benefitting Paul Walker’s “Reach Out WorldWide”
Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW) was founded in 2010 by the late actor/producer, Paul Walker. After a massive earthquake devastated Haiti, Paul spontaneously organized a relief team that responded to the disaster. On the trip, Paul saw a gap between the availability of skilled resources and the requirement for such personnel in post-disaster situations. Upon returning from Haiti, ROWW was established with the purpose of fulfilling this unmet need. Since Paul’s passing, ROWW continues to be a platform for like-minded individuals to make a difference in other people's lives. It started as an idea and has transformed into a culture equally benefiting the volunteers as much as the people they are assisting. It's turning the "I generation" into a "good will generation". It's giving good people not just a voice but a chance to act.
FuelFest is committed to helping fulfill Paul’s Legacy by contributing a portion of the proceeds from every show to ROWW – garnering the passion and generosity of the car community to help spread goodwill and make a true difference in lives that need it most.
