About The Buried Life
In 2006, The Buried Life, whose members hail from Victoria, Canada, embarked on a 2-week road trip across North America before they returned to university. That brief road trip was transformed into an incredible journey that continues to this day. The foursome made a list of '100 Things to Do Before You Die' and for every list item they accomplished, they helped a stranger do something on their list. Since then, they've crossed off 'Make a TV Show' (produced 26 MTV USA episodes which aired in 110 countries), 'Write a #1 New York Times Bestselling Book', 'Play Ball with President Obama', and 'Outfit a Teenage Girl with her First Bionic Arm'. They have also given motivational presentations at over 100 North American college campuses and several TEDx Talks across Europe. Along the way, they've encouraged millions to believe that anything is possible.
