After more than 230 entries, thousands of votes and several long interview days, Matt Andrew, 28, and Hillary Federico, 26, from Rhode Island have been chosen to tackle the adventure of a lifetime. The duo will #LiveLifeProof on the 2016 LifeProof Unleashed Summer Road Trip – taking them from mountain to desert to sea to give LifeProof cases the ultimate road test.
The LifeProof Unleashed Summer Road Trip contest kicked off in February in search of the perfect adrenaline-junky duo. The pair had to stand up to a grueling set of criteria to be selected as the new LifeProof ambassadors. Andrew and Federico rose to the challenge and are going on the road with LifeProof this summer.
“We are long-time fans of LifeProof and the lifestyle the company promotes,” said Federico. “The LifeProof Unleashed Summer Road Trip is a perfect fusion of our talents and, more importantly, our passions. We can’t wait to hit the road with LifeProof this summer.”
Andrew and Federico are college sweethearts with professional photography, videography and journalism experience who decided to hit the open road to travel and blog for a living at There They Go. From sleeping in an igloo in the Swiss Alps to hiking through leopard country in South Africa, there is nothing these two won’t do. In their travels, they have visited over eight countries and 30 states, taking on epic adventures like skydiving, skiing, snorkeling and much more.
The pair will explore the outdoors and broadcast the action from the road thanks to Verizon Wireless, official wireless provider for the LifeProof Unleashed Summer Road Trip. The ultimate road trip calls for an epic set of wheels. They’ll be traveling in style in an EarthRoamer Xpedition Vehicle, a solar powered luxury home, built on a go-anywhere, four-wheel drive vehicle that offers unprecedented versatility, style, quality and ease of operation.
Along the way, Andrew and Federico will team up with LifeProof athletes, stop at some of the summer’s biggest gatherings, including X Games Austin and Vans US Open of Surfing, and go on epic adventures like surfing, rock climbing and BMX riding.
