Myositis Empower Walk
The Myositis Empower Walk and Myositis EmpoweRun 5K were created in loving memory of Robert “Bob” Landman by his family to help Myositis Support and Understanding continue with its important patient-centered work.
The first Myositis Empower Walk hosted by the Landman family was held on May 19, 2019, in Henderson, Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas. MSU VP Lynn Wilson was able to attend and share the work we are doing with the supporters in attendance.
May is Myositis Awareness Month
The Myositis Empower Walk and Myositis EmpoweRun 5K are great ways to build community involvement around the rare disease, myositis.
May is a great time to host one of these events since it is Myositis Awareness Month.
Getting an early start in planning is essential.

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.
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.
