LAWRENCEVILLE, N.J. — Syngenta's ElRay Roper  joined Phil Cooper and the Phil Across America team in Utah, last week. The pair rode  to raise money and awareness for MS.

Roper’s motivation for doing the ride was to support Cooper's efforts in raising money and awareness for MS. Living in Utah was also a deciding factor in joining up with the riders in Panguitch.

“It’s been especially nice to see the camaraderie between all the riders, I’m happy to be a part of this incredible ride tied to an important cause,” said Roper.

Roper is Senior Technical Representative at Syngenta.
