Established by Jim Grew to honor Barbara Bolding. Jim’s fiancée Barbara Bolding was diagnosed with cancer in 1987 at the age of 34 and, following two bone marrow transplants, passed away in March of 1992.
Because of her illness, Barbara developed a special empathy for and bond with the athletes in the adaptive division of water skiing as she well understood what they were going through, especially those who lost limbs due to cancer. Before her passing, she was able to attend several Disabled National Water Ski Championships and one Disabled World Championships in Australia in 1989 where Jim was serving as Chief Judge, and she was considered a mascot for the U.S. team.
Jim Grew has been working at the national and international levels of towed water sports as an administrator, athlete, coach and team captain with emphasis on adaptive athletes since 1970. Jim was inducted into the U.S. Water Ski Hall of Fame in 2013 as the first non-elite athlete in 14 years at the time.

It helps the community grow in a substantial way. Not only does it make you feel good, but it brings the community together as a whole. We encourage our employees and agents to volunteer in their communities, volunteering has proven to help boost the self-confidence of individuals, getting them out of their comfort zone and dealing with real-world problems. It also can bring certain perspectives into view that you may not have been aware of until you see others in need.
We at The Select Group Real Estate Services, and all our subsidiary companies, feel it’s our duty to give back to our communities. Additionally, the laws of karma tell us that if you give, you shall receive.
