 CHICAGO, IL – United States Senator Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) released the following statement: 
 
“I am grateful to Dr. George Hornby, the physical therapists, and other personnel of the walking research trial at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago for helping me to advance my mobility and independence over the past nine weeks. With their encouragement and help, within the research trial I walked an average of 3,677 steps per day, a total of 14.79 miles over ground and on the treadmill, and up 145 flights of stairs.  As I move into a new phase of outpatient rehabilitation for occupational and physical therapy, I will continue to work hard in order to further regain my strength.
 
“Every day is a challenge but I am committed to providing you with updates on my rehabilitation and my work on behalf of Illinois in the United States Senate. Thank you to all who continue to send their prayers and messages of support, I am honored to serve and look forward to returning as soon as possible.”
