Can you believe it's been two decades since we first gathered together to "Play for a Good Cause" with Miles Perret Cancer Services Games of Acadiana? That's right, this year marks 20 years of playing until it helps. As you might imagine, the folks at Miles Perret were really excited about this year's version of "The Games".

Then came the coronavirus pandemic. As is always the Miles Perret Cancer Services way plans were adjusted, ideas vetted, and today we are proud to help announce some exciting changes for this year's version of The Games. Instead of Games of Acadiana, it's Games Across Acadiana, and yes it will be a virtual experience.

To facilitate Games Across Acadiana, MPCS is launching its new app and what is being called Acadiana's Ultimate Scavenger Hunt. Here's all you'll need to know to download the app.

The actual scavenger hunt won't begin until August 1st. It will last through August 20th and for each "mission" completed you'll earn points. Those points will earn you entries into drawings for some incredible prizes. There are over 50 prizes you could win including $10,000.

Many of the missions on the GooseChase App involve local businesses that have lent their support to Miles Perret Cancer Services over the years, including this radio station. Let's just say to earn points on our mission you're going to have to put on a bit of a show, but that's as much as we'll tell you right now.

The app is free to download in the App Store for Apple devices and Google Play for Android users. You'll want to go ahead and download it now. Be sure you turn on notifications so that you can special inside information on the scavenger hunt in the days leading up to its launch on August 1st.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Miles Perret Cancer Services and local families fighting cancer. For more information on joining the hunt, visit or call 337-984-1920.
