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.

"Just a note to close the loop on your recommendation to use Nathan Colmer for LBI real estate. We just settled on a house in Harvey Cedars and could not be happier. Throughout the entire process Nathan was the consummate professional. We found him to be engaging, knowledgeable and very responsive. Nathan was there every step of the way, was happy to answer all of our questions and he even went out of his way to make a final inspection of the property that we needed to complete closing. Simply stated, he is the best real estate agent we have had the pleasure of working with over the years, and that includes six prior transactions"
