CRESTVIEW — Organizers are hoping thousands of people will pack Main Street Nov. 2 for the annual Great Strides Race for Lace, raising at least $62,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Approximately 500 participants were expected for last year’s race, but 2,000 showed up, Laurie Hutchison, one of the event organizers, said. This year, she hopes for even more.

"We're planning on having 3,000 this year," she said.

Lacy Adams, 4, of Baker, for whom the event is named, chose this year's $62,000 goal, Hutchison said. Lacy, like Hutchison's daughter Meagan, a Crestview High freshman, has cystic fibrosis.

More than $52,000 was raised during last year's event, Lacy's mom, Lindsay Adams, said.

In advance of the 5-kilometer walk and run, Race for Lace is sponsoring CF 4 CF, or CrossFit for Cystic Fibrosis, Wednesday at Crestview High School's Jack Foster Stadium.
