Mays Landing resident Curt Wunder,; second from left, joins Keith O'Neal of Denver Colorado, Rick Friesen of Kansas City, Missouri and Jason McAllister of Parker, Colorado as they head out on their cross-country journey from Oceanside, California. HAMILTON TOWNSHIP – Mays Landing resident Curt Wunder left Oceanside, California, Sunday, Sept. 7 to return home to New Jersey. His planned return date is Oct. 22 – which might sound like a long time if you didn't know he is making the trek by bicycle.

Wunder is traveling with three other bikers and a three-member support crew on the Coast to Coast Ride for Hunger sponsored by MANNA Worldwide. The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness about the poverty so many children face on a daily basis.

The trip is a fundraiser that had an original goal of raising $100,000, but as that goal has already been attained, the group has increased its goal to $150,000.

The ride is quite a challenge.
