Hull’s new National League Basketball Club will be buzzing around West Park on a 5km sponsored run in order to raise funds for the newly formed club.

Hull Wasps have been financially affected since announcing the loss of their main club sponsor back in November and now the players have pulled together to seek individual sponsors for their 5km run.

“The team have decided to pull together and raise some much needed funds for the club.” said club director, David Bushnell.

“The players have been brilliant all season and it shows how much they love this club when they pull together like this and decide to raise funds from their own efforts.”

“I hope everyone can support them in their efforts and help continue to build basketball here in Hull.”

The run will take place on Sunday January 25th and all 5km will be ran around West Park including the Wasps’ home, the Gemtec Arena, and the KC Stadium. All proceeds will go toward the club to help develop the first team and junior development team.

Anyone who wishes to sponsor a player or donate to the 5km west park run can contact the club via the official Hull Wasps website at www.hullwasps.co.uk or by emailing info@hullwasps.co.uk.
