Wawa Extends Partnership With Eagles Autism Challenge; Offers Promo Code For Cyclists

You're running out of excuses to not sign up for the Eagles Autism Challenge.

On Thursday, Wawa opened its newest location in Center City on 13th and Chestnut Streets and celebrated the occasion by announcing that it will once again be a sponsor of the Eagles Autism Challenge.

The first 50 participants to register using the promo code "Wawa Grand Opening" will have their $150 registration fee waived.

Outstanding hoagies and a premier fundraiser? That's a pretty good combo.

"We are thrilled to open another new store in Center City Philadelphia and provide more convenience for our busy customers with a location right in the heart of Philadelphia's business and tourism area," said Chris Gheysens, Wawa President & CEO. "We are also thrilled to announce our renewed partnership with the Eagles Autism Challenge during the grand opening as we commit to being a Partner Level sponsor for this import event, which raises funds for Philadelphia-based institutions to continue their critical work in the areas of autism research and programs."

The Eagles Autism Challenge is a one-day bike ride and family-friendly 5K run/walk that begins and ends at Lincoln Financial Field. Wawa is proud to be a partner and sponsor the Eagles Autism Challenge's signature fundraising event that features three cycling routes – the Wawa Junior 15-Mile Ride, Wawa Shorti 30-Mile Ride, and the Wawa Classic 50-Mile Ride – offering participants a chance to ride through the City of Philadelphia and its suburbs.

The inaugural Eagles Autism Challenge, a one-day bike ride and family-friendly 5K run/walk, kicked off this weekend! It began with a party at Lincoln Financial Field on Friday night ahead of the main event on Saturday. Take a look at photos from the very first Eagles Autism Challenge.
