SPD’s Drug Abuse Resistance Education team has created a Jeep road rally that will take participants through some of the most scenic areas in Jackson County. This tour offers both guided and self-guided options. Clubs and groups are welcome. The event is designed for Jeep vehicles only. A controlled off-road park also is part of the adventure for participants to navigate if they choose.

The event also will include door prizes, a silent auction, a rock crawler area, a woods trail and food trucks.

All proceeds collected will benefit SPD’s DARE program, which serves 500 to 700 students annually and supports them in decision-making skills to support a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
