is Fan run fundraiser on February 23 (Scully's birthday) for the Neurofibromatosis Network, inspired by Gillian Anderson and The X-Files by Alicia Parker.

It was founded in August 2016.[1]

Manifesto

In the summer of 2016, I noticed that coffee shop baristas yelling out names reminded me of Mulder yelling out “Scullaaay!” on my favorite show, The X-Files. So I gave my name as Scully for a laugh, and shared the picture with some other fans, encouraging them to try it, too. I even promised to donate a dollar to the Neurofibromatosis Network for everyone who did it. I didn’t raise much money, but the idea to have a ScullyCoffee4NF day on Scully's birthday was born. If you’re not familiar with The X-Files, one of it’s stars is Gillian Anderson. Ms. Anderson has been a long time supporter of the NF Network & an advocate for Neurofibromatosis research funding. As fans, we thought this would be a fun way to celebrate her character’s birthday & say thank you for being an inspiration to so many. In 2017, X-Philes & Gillian fans raised almost $2000, we hope to top that in 2018!Neurofibromatosis Network ScullyCoffee4NF - "Scullaaay!" on February 23rd
