United in Sustainable Living

For a brighter tomorrow, and a healthy today!

Joan Bucchino, MSEd, CLC Founded the 501c3 non-for-profit organization Grace for a Cure after her then 4-year old daughter daughter Grace was diagnosed with a rare, incurable disease called Sanfilippo Syndrome. After realizing that her traditional fundraising efforts would not be enough to find a cure the disease, Joan decided to run with SMARTgame®.  SMARTgame® was born as a result of watching the effective behavioral learning techniques used by Grace's teachers in Joan's home.  It was easy to see that this method could be harnessed into something fun for ALL kids, and would teach them how to start their lives off  on the right foot - with a healthy mindset!  Grace's SMARTgame® empowers students and connects communities together in activities that heal with an added mission to raise awareness towards a cure for rare diseases and Sanfilippo Syndrome. 

Joan  has a corporate sales background and was a top performing Education Account Manager with Xerox Corporation before forming J. Grace Corporation, a for-profit company that connects communities in right action that is driven by children!   Joan was a national speaker for Tony Robbins, worked for Weight Watchers, is a certified life coach, yoga teacher and whole-child educator.
