The Summit Master
In every facet of his life, Mark Pattison scales personal and professional summits. Mark is a former NFL Player, philanthropist, podcaster and successful entrepreneur & currently an executive at Sports Illustrated while he seeks to become the 1st NFL player to ever climb the Seven Summits. To date, he has climbed 6 of the 7 mountains with Mt. Everest left in the spring of 2021. In fact, he will attempt both Mt Everest and Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain in the world within 24 hours of summiting Everest which less than 40 people have done. The Seven Summits are the highest peaks on each continent. Mark is dedicating his climb to his daughter Emilia who is overcoming her own Everest by defeating epilepsy. Mark has raised over $27,940 which is the height of Lhotse including donations from both the NFL and Las Vegas Raiders. All proceeds go to Higher Ground.
Mark's podcast, Finding Your Summit has over 100,000 downloads after 180 episodes which provides powerful conversations with celebrities, sports legends and others about overcoming their adversity and finding their way.
Mark is a father and caring human being who continually looks for opportunities to give back to others. He helps people get off the sidelines and back into the lane of life by unleashing their potential & realizing what they are capable of in their lives.
