About Team GP 2012

Team GP 2012 formed when a coworker was diagnosed with leukemia at the end of 2010. Forming the team was a perfect way to rally around Mike and show support. Mike was hospitalized and treated immediately upon diagnosis. After treatment and chemo with some remission, he was able to move forward with a bone marrow transplant. Mike spent time recovering, but came down with pneumonia in August which was too much for his body to handle. He passed away later that month, just one week after his 33rd birthday. Team GP 2012 is riding in honor of Mike August 25 and 26 at the 24 Hours of Booty charity cycling event in Columbia, Md.
