In a pit of depression, Ben and his three best friends decided to create the world’s greatest bucket list to make them feel alive.

From playing basketball with President Obama to streaking a soccer field, from raising over $400,000 for charity to placing a record-breaking $250,000 bet on roulette—Ben’s bucket list quest has inspired millions to chase their dreams.
