Wael Younan is a portfolio manager in the financial investment industry. For the past few years, Wael has spent a considerable amount of time focusing his life around three key pillars: sweating, connecting, and fundraising for worthwhile causes. Ten years ago, he discovered that he could combine all of the above while pursuing his passion for fitness and giving back. He now leads efforts to raise funds and awareness for these causes through his daily job as a financial investment professional and his fitness endeavors (half marathons and triathlons). Almost four years ago, Wael was introduced to yoga to improve his balance and flexibility in triathlon and other fitness activities. He became a 200-hour certified yoga teacher through Men Care Now (MCN) in 2020 and is continually inspired to deepen his knowledge of the body and the mind.
Wael is a board member and the treasurer of Exhale to Inhale (ETI), a member of the Executive Leadership Committee for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light the Night annual walk, and an active fundraiser for Getting Out and Staying Out (GOSO). Wael became an MCN ambassador in 2020 and has been a Lululemon ambassador since 2019.
