Our Mission

The five of us have gone to every Wawa in existence.

Many find this mission meaningless and seemingly it is; however, there is more to our venture than aimlessly driving around hoping to stumble across the region's favorite convenient store.

We have raised funds for a disease that has affected many of us in one way or another- cancer. Wawa Corportate has been extremely receptive of our efforts and have agreed to match what we have spent on our journey as well as donate an additional $10,000 to Melanoma International Foundation.

If you would like to make a personal contribution, please visit the Melanoma Internation Foundation Website http://www.melanomaintl.org/.

Current Status

  • With 596 locations, we have now visited all of them! (as of 11/6/09)
  • We have spent approximately $3,000.00 (not counting gas)and are thrilled that Wawa has agreed to match our purchases and in turn donate the money to The Melanoma International Foundation.

Stupidity

A few weeks ago myself and Mary were on Girard Ave. in Philadelphia at a ridiculously late hour attempting to get home. Right in front of the car, six gun shots went off and those on the street corner flew by our car. In stressful situations I always choose the "flight" response, which was obviously smart in this situation. I blindly put the car in reverse fearing that if I raised my head, a bullet would go through the window. Speeding off I was oblivious to the red lights I was passing through; yet, the car came to an abrupt stop when a Wawa sign appeared in front of me. We somehow made it over to Aramingo Ave and I was not going to pass up the opportunity to cross that Wawa off the list. Mary and I ran in and out of there in a matter of 1 minute. There is dedication and then there is stupidity....I think the decison to stop that night was the latter of the two.
