Verity Long-Droppert

We recently caught up with WA softballer Verity Long-Droppert as part of our latest social media campaign. Verity has previously represented Australia and Western Australia and currently plays for the Joondalup Jaguars. The What Fuels Me campaign is designed to show that eating well isn’t just the realm of professional athletes. A healthy diet helps us all get the most out of life.

Verity is one of our Healthway ambassadors, and joins West Coast Fever’s Courtney Bruce and Perth Glory’s Liam Reddy as part of the campaign.
