We Are Knight-Thon

Knight-Thon is the University of Central Florida’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon and largest student-run philanthropy, raising funds and awareness for Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children located right here in Orlando, Florida. Our year-long efforts conclude each spring with a 20-hour Dance Marathon, where more than 1,200 UCF Knights come together to celebrate their efforts made for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In 2018, Knight-Thon celebrated our 22nd year at UCF, where we left our legacy and raised $1,584, 698.22 For the Kids. Every cent raised goes towards our hospital’s most prevalent needs including medical treatments, care and research, as well as everyday items to make the hospital feel more comfortable for its patients. We strive to live by the words and legacy of the late Arnold Palmer, who said, “We can do better and we should do better for the children of our commmunity.”
