Don’t call it good, clean fun.
Kids got covered in slime in Prospect Park on Sept. 16, when television network Nickelodeon took over Brooklyn’s Backyard with games and goo as part of a local mentoring organization’s fund-raiser.
The channel known for its green goop partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City for the charity event, which included a 5k to raise money for the group that pairs kids with adults who help them navigate the difficult process of growing up.
But tots weren’t the only ones who got slimed. The service organization’s head honcho threw on a yellow rain jacket and got doused with the glop to celebrate the successful event, which took in about $420,000 and put Big Brothers Big Sisters on track to meet its half-million dollar goal.
And there are few words to describe the sludge bath, according to the executive.
“It was very gooey,” Big Brothers, Big Sisters CEO Hector Batista said of the slime. “Kind of sticky, and yeah, very gooey.”
