Columbia City, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Do you love your Jeep and want to have a little fun for a good cause this weekend?

The seventh annual "ODZ Jeep Jam" may be for you.

The Jeep rally starts at 8 a.m. Saturday with a parade of Jeeps leaving O'Daniel Jeep on Illinois Road and going to two sites in Whitley County where you can get about as crazy as you dare.

Jason Smith of the local chapter of Indiana Disabled Veterans says you can go from mild to wild with your four wheeler.

Smith says, “You bring your stock Jeep or your "Rock Crawler." It's up to you. We have everything for everybody. You can bring your brand spankin' new, off the showroom floor Jeep out. You won't even have to worry about getting a scratch. All the way up to, if you want to roll it and damage it you're gonna do it.

Every penny of the entry fee goes to the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans.

Last year the rally brought in nearly $20,000 and Smith hopes for more this year.
