Tom Karlin, as a teenager on November 5, 2011 took his own life. One year later, Grant Gottschalk, one of Tom’s lifelong friends also took his life. In 2013, The Flippin’ Sweet Memorial Disc Golf Tournament for Suicide Prevention was created by Connor Mitts, Susan Mitts, Tom Gottschalk and John Erickson.
In 2016, we partnered with Johnson County Mental Health’s Suicide Prevention Coalition and Allie Doss’s Speak Up to increase suicide prevention and depression awareness. All the proceeds of the 2017 event will go to the Johnson County Suicide Coalition to assist locally in education.
