Derris Hunt

Derris Hunt is a personal trainer who volunteers with the Nevada Center for the Blind.  When he noticed that there weren’t many options available for the blind community to pursue fitness, he wanted to change that.  Derris collected donations for the cause and purchased the needed equipment to build a fitness center for the blind.  Each week he teaches them to use the equipment and has been able to help blind individuals gain confidence and new skills that have changed their lives.
