The annual award is managed by the Jewish Community Foundation of Calgary through a memorial endowment fund created by Norman’s parents, Maxine and Dr. Edward Silver, in 1997. The Norman Ronald Silver Sports Leadership Award is to be presented to ‘an athlete who exemplifies the true meaning of team spirit and sportsmanship by serving as a leader and role model for others’.
