We also heard a carnival to help Relay for Life, which celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer:

 

Children in the City of Eugene's Youth and Family Services KidCity program will hold a Family Fun Carnival to support Relay for Life 2012 on Friday, May 18, 6-8 p.m. at Sheldon Community Center, 2445 Willakenzie Rd.

Youth in KidCity's school-age programs selected Relay for Life 2012 as their community project and worked all year to support the organization that that celebrates the lives of people who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and encourages students to eat healthy and get active.

Games at the Family Fun Carnival are just 10 cents per play. Dinner for the first 350 guests is free. Swimming at Sheldon Pool is free, too!
