Kirk climbs Willis Tower stairs
CHICAGO (AP) – Gripping a handrail and wearing a brace on his left leg, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk climbed 37 floors inside Chicago’s Willis Tower on Sunday in his first public appearance since suffering a major stroke.
Kirk, taking part in a popular charity fundraiser called “SkyRise Chicago,” started walking from the 66th floor and climbed up to the finish line at the 103rd floor.
He was met with hugs and cheers from family and friends at the end. The senator paced slowly through the crowd with the help of a cane, smiling but saying little to the media.
