VIDEO: Sen. Kirk Climbs 145 Flights of Stairs in Stroke Therapy
Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) looks like he's many steps closer to his goal of walking back into the upper chamber after his January stroke.
Kirk released a video noting the progress he's made in walking and speech therapy. He recently completed a 9-week mobility study at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, during which the senator walked a total of 14.79 miles and climbed 145 flights of stairs.
"I want to thank the people of Illinois for their patience with this patient," Kirk said.
