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.

My love of wawa grows even more!

Okay. So I love wawa. LOVE IT! Here's why:

I went to the SuperWawa by my house the other night. I really wanted a hot mint tea (my favorite!) and of course, they were out. As I was looking around to see if they had the tea anywhere else, the manager asked if he could help me. He got me the tea bags, and I asked if they sold that type of tea. He said no, but he could work a deal with me. Then he said, "Do you come here often?" I almost burst out laughing! I responded politely, "Oh yes, I go to almost a Wawa a day". Then, he ended up giving me a few free mint tea bags! Just goes to show that Wawa is really good to their customers!

Wow! I love what you're doing. What a unique and fun way to promote awareness.

I'm also trying to help raise awareness and was wondering if you would mind checking out my site. There you'll find a link to a petition demanding a Surgeon General's warning be posted on all tanning beds. I'd appreciate any help I can get.

Keep up the good work and please keep us posted on all your fun WaWa adventures!

P.s. Did you know that Corn Nuts are their own food group?

Dear girls,
I'm impressed. As a daily frequenter of Wawa, I'm a little bit jealous. Just curious, though. How are you girls going to account for the Wawa's that have not been added to the google database? In any case, good luck. Let me know when you guys get to the EB Wawa. I'll buy you all some smoothies or something and donate to your cause. I hear West Chester girls are hot.
