GEISMAR, LA (WAFB) -

A group of Louisiana plant workers recently participated in a biking fundraiser and donated more than $9,000 to a worthy cause.

The cycling team from BASF in Geismar raised $9,660 during the annual Bike MS. The two-day, 150-mile bike ride raises money and awareness for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

The BASF team was made up of 19 riders and was sponsored by the Wellness Committee at the plant.

Participants rode from Hammond to McComb, Mississippi, and back to Hammond.
