Description

The Duxbury dad whose three young children were killed in their home in January 2023 is running the Boston Marathon to raise money for Boston Children's Hospital. Their mother, Lindsay Clancy, has been charged with murder in connection with their deaths.

"I've joined the Miles for Miracles team to help the brave kids at Boston Children's Hospital in honor of my children, Cora, Dawson, and Callan, who tragically passed away in January 2023," Patrick Clancy recently wrote in a marathon fundraising blog on the Boston Children's Hospital website.

Miles for Miracles raises funds for the hospital by marathon participant soliciting donations. This year's Boston Marathon is Monday, April 15.

Clancy has so far exceeded his $25,000 fundraising goal by nearly $9,000. The amount raised as of Thursday afternoon is $33,679.

Patrick Clancy has remained out of the spotlight since the deaths of his children, Cora, 5, Dawson, 3, and Callan, 7 months.

"In the short time they were here, my kids brought me so much joy and couldn’t have made their dad prouder," he said in the post. "It goes without saying that losing them has been devastating, and it’s a heartbreak that I’ll live with forever, but I’ve committed myself to honoring their memory by trying to bring positive change. In many ways, I’m just trying to be more like them. Their passion in life was infectious."

Patrick Clancy shared memories of his children, recalling their bright personalities and love for each other.

Callan was still alive when paramedics found him severely injured the night of the murders.

"Callan spent his last moments in my arms before he passed at Boston Children’s Hospital," Patrick Clancy said. "Although I wished so badly for a different outcome, I was overwhelmed by the compassion and professionalism of the doctors and nurses in the ICU. They gave me a little more time with my boy, and I’ll forever be grateful for that."

Lindsay Clancy remains at Tewsbury Hospital, paralyzed from the waist down after climbing out of the couple's second-floor window.

Her next court date is scheduled for May 28.
