The Fanderson (also known as Fanderson Marathon or All Things Marathon) were annual charity fan events held by fans of Gillian Anderson to raise money for charities supported by Gillian Anderson[1] between 2009 and 2013. Inspired by the Scullython which originated from Order of the Blessed Saint Scully the Enigmatic and initiated by IBG Inc. several Fandersons were held around the world by fans.

Usually people gathered for a Viewing Party (were the Anderson written and penned X-Files episode all things) and two [2] Gillian Anderson films of the host and/or group's choice were shown. Every participant, the host and all guests, payed 10 USD /10 € each to participate. 100% of the money went to a charity chosen by Gillian Anderson.

The most recent Fanderson was held in 2013.
