Cul de Sac (TCDS) is a TEAMFOX fundraising effort initiated by Chris
Sparks in honor of his friend Richard Thompson, the cartoonist behind
the Cul de Sac comic strip who was recently diagnosed with
Parkinson's disease. The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to
finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded
research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies
for those living with Parkinson's today. TCDS
asked cartoonists across the world to contribute artwork to a
fundraising book and auction to raise additional money. Hundreds
responded and sent artwork in, the result of which was Team Cul de Sac: Cartoonists Draw the Line at Parkinson's published by Andrews McMeel. The book is a multiple 2013 Harvey Award nominee, and Chris Sparks received the Bob Clampett Humanitarian Award at the 2013 Eisner Awards for his efforts towards the book and the charity.
