GLAAD gets amped with 1.5-mile swim in Ft. Lauderdale

GLAAD teamed up with MKH2O to host their first-ever 1.5-mile swim fundraiser in Ft. Lauderdale on Nov. 12. Get Amped featured 35 swimmers, each of whom had a fundraising goal of $500 for the media watchdog organization.

According to Open Water Source, Ricardo Valdivia was the first out of the water in about 22 minutes. From the photos it looks like it was a windy, wavy day; But in South Florida the water's always perfect.
