Mainstreet does not have a paywall, but pavement-pounding journalism is not free. Join your neighbors who make this vital work possible.

Attendees can get a free colorectal cancer screening kit and also experience a giant walk-through inflatable colon to learn about the disease. On hand will be colorectal cancer survivors and their family members talking about their experiences, along with therapists, oncologists and a financial support navigator to help answer questions.

There will also be drawings for prizes and a free boxed lunch provided.
