How it began

When Richard Thompson, creator of the cartoon strip Cul de Sac, learned that he had Parkinson’s disease, the entire cartoon community was moved. From other cartoonists to fans, the urge to “do something” was overwhelming. Enter Chris Sparks, a friend of Richard, who came up with the idea of joining the Team Fox effort, the fundraising arm of the Michael J. Fox Foundation.

Our Mission

To raise money for research and awareness of Parkinson’s disease through the Michael J Fox Foundation.
