Leading Oilfield PDC Bit Company Partners With Childhood Cancer Canada Foundation

LEDUC, Alberta, Sept. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Ulterra LP, a leading PDC Drill Bit Company has partnered with the Childhood Cancer Canada Foundation (CCC) to help aid in the fight against children battling cancer through generating awareness and supporting pediatric cancer research. Ulterra will be generating awareness in the month of September which is marked “National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month” by painting their iconic teal drill bits purple and sending them out into the oilfield.

Ulterra chose to partner with CCC due to their commitment and experience when it comes to helping those families that get the unfortunate diagnosis of childhood cancer.  “At Ulterra we create long lasting relationships with our customers that extend well beyond the works of the oilfield or office. Once it was brought to my attention that one of our customers was dealing with the effects of this unfortunate disease I knew it was our job to help in any way we could. We decided to partner with the CCC to help raise awareness and show our support in funding research for childhood cancer,” said Jason Cunningham, Ulterra Vice President of Canada Operations.

In addition to raising awareness, Ulterra will be making a donation of $25,000 to help further the efforts of the CCC. Currently they are the leading foundation funding national research on pediatric cancer. On average, only 5% of cancer research funding worldwide is put towards childhood cancer research. Lorena Muñoz, CCC Senior Manager says, “Our ultimate goal here is not only to raise awareness and funds, but to get rid of childhood cancer all together. When we no longer need to be here, that’s when our job is done.”
