    Purity truck rodeoActivity may be down this year due to oil prices, but that hasn’t held companies back from hosting fundraising events that give back to their local communities.

    In August, Purity Oilfield Services hosted its 2nd Annual Truck Rodeo, which raised more than $22,000 for the local 4-H and Teen Challenge programs in Williston. The event is designed to test the skills of area truck drivers, but also serves as an educational event for local residents.

    “We had a truck set up so kids and parents can get in the seat and really see what it feels like to be in the truck and be in the drivers’ position and see the limitations,” said Marshall Hunt, president for Purity Oilfield Services. “But we also really wanted them to see what we have to offer, see our facilities and also let them know that we’re part of the community with them, and we want to grow with them and be a valued member of the ND community.”
