Knight-Thon returned to full capacity this year in the Addition Financial Arena. This 20-hour event that run through all of Saturday into Sunday morning is put on annually to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. These hospitals, such as Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, rely on donations and community support to give the best care possible.

Participants from Greek life and other UCF clubs came to support. Participants are required to stand for the whole 20 hours, honoring the kids who are stuck in their hospital beds every day. Events such as silent disco, rave hour and a talent show kept the participants on their feet. Each hour, a miracle family would come up and speak to the participants. These are the families that have been impacted by CMN hospitals.

At the end of the event, the total amount raised is revealed. Everyone gets to see how their hard work has paid off throughout the year leading up to the big event.
