Knight-Thon took to the Student Union Wednesday at noon to reveal the 2016 theme and donation goal.

The theme of this year's dance marathon is "We Are Knight-Thon." This year's goal is to raise $820,000 in funds for the Greater Orlando Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Knight-Thon is UCF's largest-run student philanthropy. Every year, students take to the CFE Arena to stand and dance for 20 hours, all while raising money "for the kids."

Last year, Knight-Thon raised $688,049.19, which surpassed its original goal of $500,000.
