A Mile for Miles, a virtual family walk/run, is a great way for families to come together during the Thanksgiving holiday to give thanks and support Miles Perret Cancer Services. Any time during November 22nd – November 29th, participants will pick their own course and complete a 1 mile walk or run. Registered participants will be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win a $1,000 Visa Gift Card! All ages are welcome & families are encouraged to participate together.
The Race Benefits:
Miles Perret Cancer Services is a haven for individuals and their families fighting, surviving and living with cancer. We are here to provide emotional support, guidance, resources, programs, and most of all, hope. Our services are comprehensive and always provided at no charge. No appointment is necessary and there are no financial qualifications. Our office is located in Lafayette, LA, and our mobile unit extends services to outlying communities throughout Southwest Louisiana.
Since 2002, Miles Perret Cancer Services has served over 17,000 local families. However, the reality of our success is not in numbers but in lives changed. By taking control of their individual paths to wellness, our clients are empowered to think of themselves not as cancer patients, but as survivors.
Fundraising events like A Mile for Miles raise money to help our organization serve families in Acadiana fighting, surviving and living with cancer every day.
