About Us


The Can Do 5K Run and Walk is organized by My Village Northwest (previously Northwest Special Families) to bring awareness to what kids with special needs Can Do. On this day, in this race, we celebrate the challenges kids with special needs face, and overcome. The Can Do 5K puts the emphasis on can.

My Village Northwest is dedicated to creating and cultivating relationships between the community and individuals with special needs and their families.

We organize a variety of events and activities for our families such as Special Santa, Can Do 5K, Lego Club, Teen Events, Parent Ed Classes, Mom Spa Nights, SibShops, Swimming, Gymnastics, Sledding, just to name a few!


We are an all-volunteer community made up of families with children with special needs who “get it.” We recognize the need for quality programming to help build relationships and socialize. Be apart of The Village to learn about our upcoming events.
