Additional Information

On August 25, 2001, the first Games of Acadiana (GOA) was held at the Cajundome. GOA 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 enabledMiles Perret Cancer Services to open less than a year later.
