Employees from Major League Soccer and Soccer United Marketing took to cycling this weekend for Cycle for Survival, an indoor team cycling event that raises funds for rare cancer research. Employees participated in four cycling shifts which each lasted for one hour. Team MLS raised more than $40,000 and the event total was more than $13.5M.

In 5 days, 10 cities participated in 27 rides on 2,750 bikes engaging more than 13,000 participants.

One hundred percent of the funds raised from the event go directly to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and are allocated within six months of each event. The donations help fund the most promising research and clinical trials and have led to better treatments for cancer patients worldwide.

Since its inception in 2007, Cycle for Survival has raised over $31 million dollars for rare cancer research and funded 53 clinical trials and research studies. Cycle's direct funding has drastically reduced the time it takes for treatments to reach patients - in some cases cutting the span from years to months.
