Fast and Furious 8: Ride with the family for a Paul Walker Foundation charity initiative

Posted on

Ever wanted to see a Fast and Furious car chase in action? Or learn hand-to-hand combat from Michelle Rodriguez? Or have a smoothie made personally for you by Scott Eastwood? As part of Fast 8’s new charity initiative with Omaze, you may have the chance to do just that.

The cast and crew of Fast 8 are hard at work on the next film, but before they wrap, the Fast family is inviting fans to donate to charity for a chance to win a trip to the set in Atlanta. Proceeds go to the Paul Walker Foundation, which was started by Walker’s daughter Meadow to honor the late Fast and Furious star’s legacy and protect oceans and wildlife around the world.

Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Nathalie Emmanuel, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, and the rest of the cast shared a video encouraging Fast fans to donate $10 or more to the campaign by going to Omaze’s website — or by clicking on Gibson’s forehead.

“Hey, if I had a forehead that big, I would say as much as I possibly could to distract everybody from looking at my big forehead,” Johnson added. “It sleeps eight people comfortably.”

To donate or learn more about the charity initiative, visit Omaze’s site.

Fast 8 will hit theaters on April 14, 2017, with Kurt Russell, Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, and Helen Mirren also starring.
