WaWa Cares for Kids!

Wawa raised more than $2,300 this fall to support Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Children’s Hospital! Wawa team members Lillian and Tina helped to raise money at the register for kids like our 2019 Miracle Child Champion Lilly.  Thank you Wawa for your dedication to Penn State Children’s Hospital and helping kids receive the GiftofGrowingUp! We couldn’t do it without you! #wawa #CMNHershey

Miracle Child Lilly from Elizabethtown was born at just 29 weeks after her mother, Wendy, was in a violent car accident, resulting in a heart condition and brain hemorrhage. She’s needed open heart surgery, physical therapy and has faced development challenges.

Despite these setbacks, Lilly is doing extremely well! While she can’t endure strenuous physical activity because of her heart condition, she’s not afraid to ride a bicycle, thanks to a scholarship she received from CMN in 2018 to attend iCan Shine Bike Camp. Her success at bike camp gave her the physical confidence to participate in Girls on the Run too!
