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.

"Brian Delpriora was the reason that we bought a house on LBI. He was extremely professional during all our interactions. He took the time to understand our needs and desires and was proactive in finding us listings. He is very knowledgeable about the real estate on LBI. He was able to provide us insights on all the listings that comes with living on the island and working as a police officer. He was very patient and we never felt rushed or hurried. We spent the right amount of time viewing the list of houses that together we compiled. We had limited days that we could view and he was very available. He was prompt and responsible. He was extremely helpful during the negotiation process and though I was a buyer, I could envision him selling my house also. We cannot write enough superlatives about Brian.
