Games Of Acadiana was the vision of family and friends of 8-year old Miles Perret, who lost his battle with cancer in 1996. The amazing success of the first GOA enabled Miles Perret Cancer Services to open less than a year later. This year's Games of Acadiana will take place August 18th at the Cajundome.
The 2012 Games of Acadiana begins with Opening Ceremonies at 10:00am in the Cajundome. Survivors take a victory lap around the interior of the Cajundome while the crowd cheers. After the national anthem, a brief prayer and announcement of 2012 Honorees, the games begin!
