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.

This is awesome. I've been going to Wawa since I was in elementary school in Downingtown back in the 80s. I used to walk from school to go buy my 12 inch hoagie back when you had to pick out your roll and hand it to the deli attendant, then spend the next 5 minutes describing to them how you wanted your colossal-custom hoagie to be built. Mmmm...memories. Seeing what you gals are doing brings a tear to my eye. Spreading awareness through such a great establishment is time well spent! Thanks for your efforts! Go 2010!

Rob-
I also remember those good old days at the non-computerized Wawa deli counter!
Thanks for the positive words of encouragement. Spread the word!
