Become a Super Sleuth!

Take part in our Super Sleuth challenges and get sponsored to complete the 70* mile trail. Connect The Big Sleuth app with your JustGiving page and activate your fundraising by taking part in our Super Sleuth challenges specifically designed to raise funds as you collect bears and miles on the go!

  • Step 1 Visit the Fundraise section of the app (the heart icon)
  • Step 2 Review the Super Sleuth challenges and decide which one you’d like to do.
  • Step 3 Plan and organise with your friends to complete the challenge in a group† or go solo!

  • Step 5 Set your challenge start date and time.
  • Step 6 Reset your bears before the challenge starts (optional).
  • Step 7 When the challenge is LIVE bears/miles updates are posted to your JustGiving page.

Group Challenges†
Before you set up a group challenge decide the Group Leader. They need to create the Group, share the Group ID and will set the challenge start date and time. You can’t join a different group or create a new one once you have set up a challenge in the app.

Resetting your bears and pedometer to zero (optional)
You can start the Super Sleuth challenges with your existing bear and pedometer count. Or if you want to be a true Super Sleuth you can use our nifty reset feature to reset your bear and pedometer count to zero. Don’t worry you won’t lose your rewards. Remember you’ll need to reset before the challenge starts.

Funds Raised
Take a look at our Super Sleuth JustGiving page to see how your fundraising is supporting our £5,000 target. Any funds raised via The Big Sleuth Fundraising ideas will go towards the general fund at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity to help do more for sick kids, unless otherwise specified by the fundraiser.
