Greyhound Adoption of Greater Rochester will hold its annual Greyhound Planet Day Walkathon Sunday in Rochester.

Cindy Bauer and Jennifer Gee discussed the event Friday on News 8 at Noon.  Cindy's greyhounds Daisy and Violet were in studio as well.

The Greyhound Walkathon will begin at 1 p.m. at 600 Park Avenue, rain or shine.  The one mile walk will end at 1:30 at the corner of Park Avenue and Barrington Street with an ice cream social.  The idea of the event is to raise awareness about the need to find homes for retired racing greyhounds and to raise money through donations.

Since 2002, Bauer says about 700 greyhounds have been adopted locally.
