Wellness Fund,

In Honor of Christine Varner.

Not too long ago, Christine was in the limelight as a member of the sixteenth season of 'Big Brother' – where there and after she was characterized as energizing and optimistic –  which is how she has undoubtedly been memorialized as in Big Brother history. However, unbeknownst to the public eye, Christine has persevered in the face of adversity. Whether it be battling ongoing health-concerns, leaving an abusive marriage, or persisting in her pursuit of education despite feelings of hopelessness – she continuously instills positivity in those around her. Understanding the impact of adverse circumstances and harsh online criticisms, she's been motivated to advocate in favor of physical and mental wellness. Christine's willingness to be vulnerable in hopes of promoting change is an example that we hope to instill in leaders across Southern Arizona
