Mark Kirk U.S. Senator for Illinois ICYMI: Kirk�s Battle Buddies�* *My own battle buddy Jackson has inspired me to never give up and to work hard every day during my recovery. It is my goal to offer the same support for others feeling alone.** [image = www.kirk.senate.gov/images/wgnbattlebuddies.png] [link 1] *Click here [link 2] to view WGN�s story about Kirk�s Battle Buddies.* Dear unity, Yesterday I hosted my inaugural �Battle Buddies� meeting at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago with local Illinoisans who have suffered health setbacks and disabilities. I created �Kirk�s Battle Buddies� to inspire and push individuals to continue working hard on their rehabilitation. The �Battle Buddies,� who are all at various stages of their recoveries, were encouraged to set personal physical goals, from climbing steps at their own homes to competing in stair climbs in all of Illinois� tallest buildings.� Pastor John Caples from Jesus Name Apostolic Church in Waukegan also joined us. Healing people using faith and counseling is the best way to bring them back into the work force, and with Pastor John Caples I know that this group will be a beacon of hope to countless Illinois residents. Tomorrow I will join some of my �Battle Buddies,� including my State of the Union guest [link 3] Jackson, for the �Hustle Up the Hancock,� which is�an annual event that brings 4,000 individuals together to climb the John Hancock Center�s stairs to raise funds for lung disease research, advocacy and education.
