KSP Trooper eats pizza to fund-raise for Shop with a Trooper

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- As part of an effort to help fund-raise for Shop with a Trooper, the Kentucky State Police held their first annual Dust-a-Thon.

Professional Eater and Kentucky State Trooper, Bartley Weaver, gave all he could stomach to down as many pieces of pizza as he could within 30 minutes.

All donations and pledges at Tuesday's fundraiser at Larry's Pizza (including 10% of all dine in sales during the event benefited KSP SWAT as well).

Shop with a Trooper takes place every December. Participating kids will be able to pick out much needed clothes, food, and toys they can enjoy Christmas morning.

Weaver finished the night with 47 pieces of pizza, raising $5,000 for Shop with a Trooper.

The Flip'n Axe and Trent Bedding were two of the sponsors for the event, along with other businesses and donors.

The Flip'n Axe donated $10 per slice.
