Public, first responders participate in charity pizza eating contest

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The public and first responders kicked off Labor Day weekend in a unique way. They participated in a pizza eating contest.

Pizza Nine hosted the contest on Saturday.

While the public was competing, police and fire departments were also going head to head in their own competition to win money for charity.

“I just wanted to make a prediction that the New Mexico State Police will beat the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office,” said a deputy. No word yet on whether New Mexico State Police were able to back up that tough talk and win.

The public was competing for a thousand dollar cash prize. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
