Michael Sapienza's first love was music. He received his Master of Music degree from Rice University and Bachelor of Music degree from Northwestern University and was a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. Michael was awarded a position with the New World Symphony Orchestra. He served on faculty at the North Carolina Governor's School as instructor of trumpet and wind ensemble. He has performed with the Millar Brass Ensemble, Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra, Northwest Indiana Symphony, and Rockford Symphony. But, then something happened that change the trajectory of his life. "I remember the day when my mom called me and told me that she had been diagnosed with colon cancer. It was actually October 4, 2006. I was living in Miami Beach, Florida. I was playing in an orchestra. I moved back home about two months before she passed and we actually decided as a family to participate in scope it out 5k run/walk in her memory and our journey to form Chris4Life had begun." Now, I dedicate my entire time to fighting this most preventable disease and helping those who have been stricken with it in some way.
