This one-day event, drawing in nearly 1,500 youth from across Ontario, is the only one of it’s kind led entirely by a team of high school students. Toronto teen, Shane Feldman, had the idea for a school assembly to motivate his peers when he was just 13 years old. As he developed the idea, his vision grew from a small school assembly to a provincial event. Now at 17, Shane is proud to be leading the Count Me In movement, recognized today as the largest initiative of its kind.
