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

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

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

Chrissie, 48, announced on Monday she’ll be ‘pounding the pavement’ 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 300km to restore sight to those with avoidable blindness,’ she wrote on Instagram.

‘It only takes $25 to restore someone’s sight. That’s amazing to me! Will you get behind me? Last year we raised over $80,000 (that’s over 3,200 people who can see again because of 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 updated as I go. Let’s do this!’

She posted another photo on Instagram Stories of herself getting her steps in.

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

In her next post, she revealed she’d already walked 9.24km on Monday.

‘Not a bad start for day 1 of my @fredhollows 300kms goal,’ she wrote. ‘Day 2 today! You can donate below… just $25 cures someone of avoidable blindness!’

Chrissie took part in the challenge this time last year, initially aiming for 150km before later extending her goal to 300km.

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

Chrissie has lost a significant amount of weight since early 2020.

The Masked Singer judge, who has lost 90kg since the start of Covid lockdowns, previously credited her slim-down to daily walks and quitting alcohol.

Chrissie has more recently decided to no longer discuss her weight loss publicly.

‘I think the reason I’m not talking about anything now is because I have done that in the past 20 years,’ she told Stellar magazine in July.

‘I’ve waded into that kind of 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 propagates the interest in a woman’s body, which is irrelevant,’ she added.

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

She said the ‘enormous’ lifestyle changes she’d made over the previous 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.
