Press About Mark


Message from Raiders Alumni Department

Dear Alumni Family,

We want to take a moment and highlight the accomplishments of Raiders Alumnus Mark Pattison. On May 23rd, 2021 Mark successfully summited Mt. Everest to complete his Seven Summits goal. He is only one of two NFL players who have accomplished this feat. Throughout his climbing journeys, he has supported causes important to his life. His daughter Emilia was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 8 and he has dedicated his climbs to epilepsy support and awareness. For his Everest climb, he successfully raised over $60,000 in donations to support the foundation Higher Ground.

NFL 360 followed Mark through his Seven Summits journey and produced a 30-minute film highlighting Mark’s Everest journey called Searching for Summit. Much of the footage included in the film was shot by Mark himself. We encourage everyone to watch Mark’s journey at the following link: Searching for Summit

Congratulations Mark! Best of luck on your future adventures!
