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.

Unfulfilling, yet necessary

Yesterday Emily and I spent 2 hours driving around Linwood Pa in order to cross two more Wawas off the list. We have gotten to the point where there aren't any Wawas in close proximity to our homes(that have not been reached); therefore, we are done the phase of quick Wawa trips.

To make us sound a bit more normal, we typically don't drive around randomly looking for Wawas. We are a bit more economical in that we often pair our Wawa outtings with trips we would naturally take, such as going to the NJ Shore.

However, days such as yesterday consisted of driving for no apparent reason other than having 2 less Wawas that need to be visitied in the future.
