University of Central Florida students participated in a 20-hour stand for UCF’s 20th annual Knight-Thon.

Students collectively gathered together in hopes of raising $820,000 “for the kids,” but that goal was surpassed by $181,678.20.


The final amount was a staggering $1,001,678.20. Money earned in this year’s Knight-Thon will go to both funds and awareness for the Greater Orlando Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

This donation will make UCF the eighth institution ever to break the one-million dollar mark for Children’s Miracle Network.
