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.

Taking a few days off..........

Thursday evening into Friday, myself and driver/co-worker Jim Fry reached a record of 45 Wawas in New Jersey over a 24 hour span. The first 12 hours were fun as we listened to music, ate our favorite foods, and chatted. Once the Jersey beach traffic hit on the last leg of the trip, we couldn't get to our goal fast enough.

As we both recoup today after consuming 10 peppermint patties, 1 coffee, 3 bags of chips, 3 shorties, 2 milkshakes, 2 cow tails, 2 cheese sticks, multiple green teas and cereal, I can say that I know New Jersey inside and out....there are a surprising number of diners, traffic circles and produce stands.

*Jim, who drove me, was not allowed to purchase any items, since he is not 1 of the 5 participants.
