Senator Mark Kirk is returning to Capitol Hill Thursday morning, nearly a year after suffering a stroke.
Kirk will mark his return by climbing the 45-steps of the Capitol building in Washington D.C.
He’ll be greeted at the top by Vice President Biden, Senator Durbin and other Congressional colleagues.
This climb is two months after Kirk climbed 37 flights of stairs in a charity event at the Willis Tower.
The Senator has endured surgeries and intensive physical therapy in his rehabilitation.
