She’s following in her dad’s footsteps.
Paul Walker‘s 17-year-old daughter, Meadow, presented Adrian Grenier with the 2016 Paul Walker Ocean Leadership Award at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Saturday (June 4, 2016). The Entourage star was honored because of his work with The Lonely Whale, an organization that helps the world’s oceans through education and awareness.
“Honored to share my voice today. Thank you @paulwalkerfdn for recognizing my work with @lonelywhale. #TeamLonelyWhale #DoGood,” the actor wrote on Instagram.
Last September, to celebrate what would have been Paul’s 42nd birthday, Meadow started The Paul Walker Foundation. Since then she’s been honoring her father’s legacy by providing grants and scholarships to students and researchers working towards protecting the ocean.
Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood
