To my fellow Catholic Memorial Knights,
My name is John Moriarty and I am honored to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon on behalf of CM! To give you a little bit of background about myself, I graduated from CM in 2007 and then went on to UMASS Amherst where I earned both my Undergraduate degree and Master's degree in Accounting. I have been working at Liberty Mutual in finance for five years and I currently reside in South Boston with my wife, Stephanie.
I have always been passionate about running; I am positive that this fire was passed on to me by my CM cross country and track coaches Tom Beatty and Vincent Catano. They taught me about teamwork and unwavering persistence. Their guidance have provided me with the drive and confidence to pursue my dream of running the historic Boston Marathon. I am truly humbled.
CM has continued to be an unforgettable experience for generations of Knights. The friends, teachers, and coaches all molded priceless memories and life experiences throughout the years. Personally, my family has a rich history with CM. Including myself and my brothers, Chris, Matt, and Luke, a 'Moriarty' has been in a CM classroom each year since 2001, and this will continue until Luke graduates in the year 2022. The marathon fundraising efforts will not only benefit my brothers but will benefit countless students to pave the way for their success as men of “poise and class.”
I am honored to give back to the community that provided me with countless growth opportunities. You may not know me personally, but I am confident that CM has made its mark on you or your family throughout the years. Consider the lifelong friends, the quality education, and the life lessons that CM made possible. This is an extraordinary way to give back to the school that shaped you and your ideals. Please consider giving to this cause. All donations, no matter how big or small, will help shape the future generation of Knights.
