Movember for a Bro | Eric Kirschner wins bronze at 55+

 

For the second year in a row, our very own Commercial Buyer for Vancouver Island, Eric Kirschner, participated in the 55+ BC Games in Kelowna. Eric is actively fighting prostate cancer which has recently spread to his bones.

From September 10-14th, 2019, thousands of participants and supporters came together to celebrate sport and fun with friends from across British Columbia. Eric’s strong will, heart, and pure determination resulted in him finishing third in his age category in the 1,500-meter power walk event!!! Congratulations Eric! You are an inspiration to us all.

The 55+ multi-sport annual BC Games were first organized in 1987, with the assistance of the Provincial Government, Sport, Recreation and Development branch, for the older adults of BC, as a direct bearing on their quality of life.

Did you know that 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime? From November 1-30 please consider participating in Movember by growing a moustache and raising awareness about prostate cancer. Since 2003 Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

In solidarity with Eric’s fight, ABC Recycling will be joining the Movember movement where our team will Grow a Mo’ to Save a Bro’. The winner will be selected by Eric Kirschner at the end of November and a donation will be made to the Canadian Cancer Society on their behalf.

Meet our new Operations Manager in Surrey

Sam Sladich joined our ABC Surrey team in November 2017, bringing with him 4 years of supply chain experience working at a plastics manufacturing company. Sam’s career at ABC began in Retail Sales and he recently transitioned into the role of Operations Manager. Sam describes Retail Sales as a fluid job which exposed him to nearly everything in our Surrey operation, thus preparing him well for his new role.

The positive culture and good support systems are what Sam likes best about working at ABC. His crew support and help one another.

Getting immersed in the day-to-day operations and being face-to-face with his crew and customers are the things Sam most enjoys about his job. And when he doesn’t know the answer to something he has learned to ask questions!
