Bottom taking part in ‘Pedal for Pat’ 1,098-mile bike ride

Mark Bottom of Imperial is among eight riders taking part in the first ever “Pedal for Pat” bike ride to benefit the Pat Summitt Foundation and its work with Alzheimer’s. Each rider was presented with a basketball signed by the legendary Tennessee Lady Volunteers coach, pictured above. On Tuesday the riders were joined by others on the first leg of the 1,098-mile trek, pictured below. It symbolizes the 1,098 games Summitt won as the Lady Vols coach. She died from Alzheimer’s complications in 2016. Bottom is fourth from left above and fourth from right below.  (Courtesy photos)
