The University of Central Florida is “FTK” — For The Kids.
This weekend UCF shattered its $820K record, raising $1,001,678.20 for charity.
For 20 hours 1,500 people danced inside the CFE arena as part of UCF’s annual “Knight-Thon,” a philanthropy that raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network.
UCF is now only the eighth institution ever to raise over $1 million for the Children’s Miracle Network, making “Knight-Thon” a top 10 nationally ranked dance marathon.
UCF upped its charitable donation from the previous year by over $300K, where UCF raised $688,049.19 after setting a goal of $500K.
Knight-thon is UCF’s largest philanthropy, and attracts hundreds of students every year.
UCF students are already looking forward to what next year’s donation will be.
