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.

No pain, no gain

Ann and I made another Wawa run yesterday. We discovered that as we get closer and closer to our goal, the process is becoming more difficult. We are traveling routes we've been before. We have to pass by several Wawas that we have already frequented. We sometimes drive up to one only to find that it is now a Pantry One. Some that we have already visited have since closed and a new bigger one has opened up across the street, so we go back. While it feels like it is slower going now, it is exciting! The pain in the process means that we are indeed approaching the finish line. On we go...
