OCCUPATION: Currently playing Professional Rugby League for the Brisbane Broncos.

I love the FAB Pledge and FAB Principles as I know it will help change the lives of many people. People know how to lose weight but need a reminder to do so because "life" gets in the way. FABRUARY is about reminding, encouraging and educating people for a whole month to eat healthier and to stay active, that's why I love the concept.

The reason why I am getting involved in the FAB health and wellbeing campaign is because Obesity is a huge epidemic and only going to get worse.

PRESTON CAMPBELL-FORMER NRL PLAYER

FAB AMBASSADOR 2015-2017

BIO

OCCUPATION: Director Preston Campbell Foundation

I am privelleged to be chosen as a FABRUARY Ambassador and for me, there are few reasons why I chose to be apart of this great campaign. Firstly, while there are many things that have changed since I was a young bloke, we as people have not changed too much. But one of the biggest changes that I have seen is what we eat and how we eat it. To be blunt, it is scary. Hopefully with the FAB crew, we can help people realise what they can achieve both physically and mentally. Secondly, coming from an Indigenous background, I know all too well how diabetes, heart conditions and obesity can affect a person and their families. For a long time now, there have been efforts in making sure there is enough information out there, so that we can bring down the amount of people with these health conditions. To have FABRUARY is to have more hope of realising we can achieve that. Lastly, when growing up, it was almost a ritual to go out bush and catch and eat what we caught. There was always a great source of food, and it was a great way of getting some excercise. These days, we find it easier to catch food from the local supermarket or take away shop, where it can be easy to buy the things that can taste so delicious but may not be so good for you. This needs to change.

I am Both honored and thrilled to be a FAB ambassador and take great pride in playing my part in inspiring others to set themselves a new standard and build a solid foundation that set the little mistakes we all make as an Armour for the future.
