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.

Another insane Wawa map update!!!

Busy as always, the girls have visited 56 Wawas in the last two weeks! They are now over 70% complete and have upped their average receipt to over $3!

They only have 172 Wawas left to visit, and with 2 years remaining it seems like a very achievable goal.

Congratulations to Mary for breaking the 100 Wawas visited mark! Way to go, Mary!!!

Em is just 7 short of 100 and I'm sure she'll be passing that plateau very shortly. C'mon, Em!

Great work, girls!!

Question: When you visit a Wawa you've never been to before, do you explain your quest to them, or do you just get your receipt and slink away?

Ann said...

Basically we just get our receipt and slink away. We are more time efficient that way (and we also feel more "normal" by not drawing attention to ourselves.)

What a great adventure!!!! I'm inspired by WaWa as well. My partner, Steve, and I are compiling WaWa Haiku's, and hopefully publishing them.

We've posted on craigslist and emailed all our frieds/coworkers for contribution.

So far we're at about 150, and would love if you'd contribute. Anything about WaWa, your experiences, fav foods, or just admiring the building overall.

Post them there and include your name for credit!!!!

I'm doing a project about Wawa for my marketing class. The map of the stores you've vistied does a good job illustrating the range of Wawa. Great idea and good intentions.
