Wali is the founder of Sports Connect, a Singapore based sports marketing & athlete management agency focused on emerging markets.

Wali, a Member of Namal Knowledge City and Chief Organizer for the 100 Cities Campaign in Singapore, is on a mission to inspire. He survived a life threatening motorbike accident on 18th July, 2018 and since then has fought a series of battles towards making a full recovery. Since that fateful day, he has been inspired to dedicate his life to supporting Namal.

Wali is training hard to be able to run a 5km race on the anniversary of his accident in July, 2019 and in doing so, will be donating all the funds collected from his endeavour to developing sporting facilities for students at Namal College.

After his accident he has started Overcome, a support community where people share their stories of Overcoming adversity and help other do so. Support him on this cause & follow his journey at Facebook.com/overcomewithwali and at https://www.instagram.com/walikhan.86/ on Instagram
