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.

I am annoying

Yesterday at the Newtown Square Wawa, I performed the most irritating act. I handed the cashier 10 nickles, 33 pennies and 5 dimes. To the cashier's credit, he laid each coin on the counter and proceeded to add up the amount.

I normally know better than to present such an absurd quantity of change; but in my defense, I had lost my wallet and had no other means to make a purchase.

I was hated by about 10 people that day, but I wound up getting a 16 oz coffee out of the experience.

Hey.. I just found this!!!.. I work for Wawa and I would love to know if you visited the store I work at. So would everyone else I told about this. How do I find out?

P.S. I would've given you such a "stare"!!! if you gave me all that change.. LOL!!.. but we get that all the time. It's better than getting $100 bills for a purchase of gum!

I just figured out how to use your map!!!!!.. You have NOT visited the store where I work. It is on Rosewood Avenue in Trevose, PA!!! and is marked unvisited. It would be amazing and you would probably raise a lot more money if Wawa employes (who have a little influence on Wawa Corporate) actually knew what you were doing!! and why you were doing it! Good Luck and raise lots of money!!

Valerie,

Thanks so much for your interest. Many people ask us if we tell the wawa employees and really we never have. I guess we feel like it would be difficult to explain it each time we enter a store. When we go to Trevose we will defnitely look for you!

I see West Chestnut St in Vineland, NJ is still unvisited, but to save you some trouble...it is no longer a Wawa. Great job with all the others!
