“11337: Life is Always the Answer”
Ryan Clancy is 21 years old and comes from a law enforcement family. He is the youngest of 4 siblings, growing up on the Southside of Chicago with his sisters Melissa and Patsy, and his brother Timmy. His father, Tim, is a Chicago Police Lieutenant, and his mother, Ann, is a Chicago Police Dispatcher. He currently attends Ohio State University, where he is studying Finance and competes for the boxing team. He began his boxing career through Letz Box Chicago, and has found a true passion for the sport under the leadership of Dan Letz. The respect and discipline he has developed through boxing is something he feels this world desperately needs. His sister, Patricia Swank, was a 5th generation police officer who died by suicide on July 2nd, 2022. She lives on through her 5 year old son, Scottie. Since her death, Ryan has spread awareness for our officers and is bringing light to the mental health crisis they are facing. He has done numerous speeches, podcasts, and interviews in support of our officers, challenging leadership to create change and give our heroes the help, time, and resources they desperately need and deserve. Ryan has also joined the Board of Directors at Under The Shield, which is a non-profit mental health organization for first responders that offers 24/7 anonymous services. The service and protection that first responders and military provide to our country does not come without cost, as the trauma they experience takes a huge toll on their mental health and wellness. “I want to do everything in my power to protect those who are protecting us. I will not let my sister be forgotten and I will do whatever it takes to prevent us from losing the next hero. In a world that is so often against you, I support you, I thank you, and I love you. This is why I will never end the fight. I want to make a difference and give back to those who put their lives on the line for us every single day.”
