COLORADO SPRINGS — You may remember Nickelodeon's epic slimes from back in the day.

Well, their famous "Double Dare Live" show is coming to the Broadmoor World Arena, and they're teaming up with the YMCA of the Pikes Peak region to launch their "Get Goo'd for Good" challenge.

In honor of the popular kids show, the Pikes Peak Center wanted to partner up with a charity supporting kids, so they chose to highlight military children and family programs at the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region.

So the arena is challenging everyone to get goo'd! And they challenged every local media outlet, including News5, to take part.

So News5's Jessica Barreto was the first to go out there bright and early and accept the challenge.

The Pikes Peak Center will be posting all competing videos on their Facebook page as well.

The votes collected on this page and their page will tallied together, and the video with the most likes wins a chance to compete in the live shows!

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak region raises money year-round to provide financial assistance to military families so children can participate in different sporting and day-care activities.

If you go to the arena from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, they'll provide the slime and the first 25 people to get goo'd will get 25% off tickets to Double Dare Live.

The goo is made of flour, gelatin, a bottle of baby shampoo, and water.

Double Dare Live is coming to the Broadmoor World Arena on Nov. 3.
