From the 2nd Annual Myositis Empower Walk
The 2nd Annual Myositis Empower Walk was a huge success, raising over $18,000! It was held Saturday, September 19, 2020, in-person at Discovery Park in Henderson, NV, and virtually, LIVE on Facebook! If you missed it, no worries, you can watch the recording.
The Landman Family created the Myositis Empower Walk in loving memory of Robert “Bob” Landman. This year, the Empower Walk introduced the virtual experience, with live participation. We went LIVE on Facebook to Discovery Park with the Landman’s and Shelby, who enthusiastically hosted the LIVE video.
We look forward to the Third Annual Myositis Empower Walk in 2021. The date will be announced as soon as possible to allow you to plan!

About The Landman Family
When Robert “Bob” Landman became ill he was misdiagnosed several times. When he finally got the diagnosis of dermatomyositis, it was too late for any of the medications to be effective and Bob passed away due to complications.
Since, Gladys, Jenna, Lauren, and Chad have been involved to help MSU promote awareness and raise money to continue to further our mission.
What a great legacy Bob leaves for other patients continuing to fight this rare disease.
Read “Our Dad was More Than His Dermatomyositis” to learn more about Bob Landman.
If you have lost a loved one with myositis, share their information with us to be included in MSU’s Annual “A Day of Remembrance” video event. We want to publicly remember those we have lost.
