Chrissie Swan reveals her dramatic fitness goal as she vows to run 300km in a month for charity

TV and radio host Chrissie Swan has continued to meet her fitness goals after losing 90kg since the start of the Covid lockdowns.

And now the mother of three has set herself a new goal: to walk 300 km in one month for the Fred Hollows Foundation.

Chrissie, 48, announced Monday that she will be “stamping the curb every day” in August to raise money for the blindness charity.

‘I’m doing it again! It’s August and that means I’ll be walking 300 miles to restore sight to people with preventable blindness,” she wrote on Instagram.

“It only costs $25 to restore one’s eyesight. That’s great for me! Will you stand behind me? Last year we raised over $80,000 (that’s over 3,200 people who can see again thanks to you!?) This year I’m aiming for $100,000!’

She concluded: ‘Whatever you can spare – there’s a link in my bio. I’ll keep you posted when I go. Let’s do this!’

She posted another photo on Instagram Stories in which she takes her steps.

‘I’m running 300 km this month. You can get behind me and donate to save someone’s eyesight through the link in my bio…” she wrote.

In her next post, she revealed that she had already run 9.24 km on Monday.

“Not a bad start to day 1 of my @fredhollows 300km goal,” she wrote. ‘Day 2 today! You can donate below…just $25 will cure someone of preventable blindness!’

Chrissie took part in the challenge at this time last year, initially aiming to hit 150km and later extending her target to 300km.

According to an Instagram post last year, she clocked more than 310 miles and told her followers that a company had offered to double her donations for the next $15,000.

Chrissie has lost significant weight since early 2020.

The judge of Masked Singer, who has lost 90 kg since the start of the Covid lockdowns, previously attributed her weight loss to daily walks and quitting alcohol.

Chrissie recently decided to stop publicly discussing her weight loss.

“I think the reason I’m not talking about anything now is because I’ve been doing that for the past 20 years,” she told Stellar magazine in July.

“I ended up in such a toxic environment and it didn’t make me feel good. And it didn’t help me, and it didn’t help anyone else. And it just promotes interest in a woman’s body, which is irrelevant,” she added.

Chrissie briefly discussed her weight loss in an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly earlier this year.

She said the “huge” lifestyle changes she’d made over the past 12 months had improved her life in so many ways.

“I’m not going to talk about the size of my a**e. I’m not going to tell you what I eat in a day. Because I’ve read those stories and they make me feel bad about myself,” she told the magazine.
