After fourteen years, former New Jersey State Police Officer Craig Potter will get back on his bicycle for a repeat charity ride for "Ocean of Love," an organization that helps children with cancer, and their families, by providing financial and emotional support. His cross-country trip to Seaside, Oregon will begin on Wednesday, May 23. The ride will take approximately three months, covering 4,500 miles. He will return around September 1 in Ship Bottom, New Jersey.
In 1998 Potter biked from Manahawkin to Florida with his wife Donna and their children Jon, Marc and Kate following behind him in a van as a support team. They were able to raise almost $20,000. Tragically, Donna passed away in 2009 with an eight year battle with cancer, but in keeping his promise to Donna and his family, Craig is gearing up for another trip in hopes to raise $25,000 for the organization.
Donations can be sent to Ocean of Love-Charity Bike Ride, 1709 Route 37 East, Toms River, NJ 08753 or you can donate online at www.ocean-of-love.org. You can also follow Craig onFacebook.

Illusionist David Copperfield buys Las Vegas Summerlin home for $17.5M
"Anthony Romeo is a consummate professional who actively represented our interests during the sale of our house. His advice was invaluable in staging our house and his 3D online photo tour system was an amazing service. Anthony went the extra mile (literally driving across Las Vegas at a moment's notice) to show our house on several occasions. He even helped us with moving logistics while we were both out of town. Anthony fought hard for us during negotiations and got us a great price for our house. We would recommend him to anyone and will use him again in the future."
