Celebrating the new “Miles for Miles Trail”

Lafayette, LA, August 22, 2023 —

Moncus Park celebrated the official opening and ribbon-cutting of the “Miles for Miles Trail” — a meaningful addition to the park that serves as both a pathway and a symbol of resilience. The new trail is dedicated to all individuals who have shown remarkable strength in the face of cancer, embodying the spirit of determination and collective support.

Beyond its symbolic significance, the new multiuse “Miles for Miles Trail” offers park guests an opportunity to explore the back 50 acres of the property. Additionally, the new trail increases Moncus Park’s ADA-accessible pathways by over 2,000 linear feet, completes a 1-mile loop, and includes two additional park benches, and waste receptacles to enrich visitor experience.

The “Miles for Miles Trail” was made possible through an anonymous donor and the support of a state-administered, federal-aid grant from the FHWA Recreational Trails Program for Louisiana (RTPL).

“We are so thankful to have the new ‘Miles for Miles Trail’ available to our community in Acadiana through the generosity of an anonymous donor,” said Hank and Debbie Perret, founders of Miles Perret Cancer Services. “Our hope is that this trail will bring joy to many families and help to raise awareness for our mission at Miles Perret Cancer Services to serve families in Acadiana fighting and surviving cancer.”
