Many people complain about the view from their office window - too many pigeons, construction work, etc. But Real Salt Lake's captain Kyle Beckerman can have no such complaints about the view from his "office." Wow.

On February 11, Team MLS/SUM raised over $75,000 to support Cycle for Survival, the national, indoor relay-style team cycling event that has raised more than $9 million in support of lifesaving research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

This year's event broke all records and has provided Memorial Sloan Kettering with over $8M in funds.  Every dollar raised by Cycle goes directly to Memorial Sloan-Kettering for research on rare cancers, paving the way for new, more effective treatment options.

The event was inspiring, emotional and fun, and wouldn't have been possible without the support of our friends, family and fans.  A sincere thanks to everybody, and if you have interest in learning more about Cycle for Survival, you can visit www.CycleforSurvival.org.

We are redesigning the app and posting new screenshots to the wonderful dribbble.com design community.  Take a look and let us know what you think!
