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.

Any official commitment?

Many people are wondering what Wawa Corporate has "committed" to. The answer to that is not simple, but I will explain:

  • Wawa has not committed to anything in writing at this point.
  • Wawa corporate has been extremely supportive of our travels.
  • We, along with the Melanoma International, must apply for a grant from The Wawa Giving Fund.
  • We are not asking for any type of monetary contribution from Wawa until we complete the mission.
  • Once our mission is complete, we will be donating a "money spent" matching donation to MIF.
  • We continue to visit Wawa's and are enjoying the thrill of the hunt for new ones.

More to come...
