The pair swam for the charity event "A Rainbow of Hope: A Celebration of Philippines-South African Friendship," which was organized by businessman and honorary consul of Georgia in the Philippines Buddy Cunanan, in cooperation with the Cape Long Distance Swimming Association (CLDSA), which supervises and certifies all Robben Island swims.
As per the rules of the CLDSA, they had to swim from Robben Island and make it unassisted to the shore of Bloubergstrand, at least one meter from the waves, to be recognized as an official swim and to be placed in the record books.
Unable to walk properly, Valencia was assisted by officials of the CLDSA, who immediately brought him to the Big Bay Lifesaving Club, where he was covered in warm towels and blankets and several hot water bottles.
