The toughest sport on dirt comes back to the Ford Idaho Center Friday night: The Professional Bull Riders Series.

The bulls have been brought in from all across the country and the top 35 bull riders in the world are ready for a wild ride.

Last minute preparations were underway in the afternoon hours.

The PBR has partnered with the local Man Up Crusade foundation once again this year. It's a public awareness campaign on domestic violence.

"There's no other professional sport in the world that is doing what they're doing on the issue of domestic violence. That's significant," said Kieran Donahue, founder of Man Up Crusade. "So, another reason to come out and support them and support the bull riders."

The action starts at 7 o'clock Saturday. If you go, and want to show your support for the campaign, be sure to wear purple.
