Three years after the death of Brad Delp, lead singer of the band Boston, his daughter Jenna is racing to Mongolia in his memory.
The 29-year-old, with friends Nick Supple and Nick Dale, will drive a car fueled by waste vegetable oil more than 8,000 miles from London to Mongolia in a charity event, the annual Mongol Rally, which kicks off July 24.
The rally requires participants to raise $1,700 for Mercy Corps Mongolia, which aids rural residents of the remote Central Asian country. Delp’s team, the Non-Toxic Avengers, expects to raise additional funds to benefit a charity closer to her home and heart: the Brad Delp Foundation, which provides money and scholarships for school music programs.
