Former Mercer Junior Rower Killed In Ukraine Providing Humanitarian Aid

The thoughts and prayers of the entire PNRA/Mercer community go out to the family of Pete Reed, the American humanitarian aid worker killed in the Ukraine earlier this month.  Mr. Reed grew up in Burlington, NJ and rowed for the Mercer Junior Rowing Program when he was in high school.  He spent time in the Marine Corps before co-founding Global Outreach Doctors which focused its efforts on providing medical aid in war torn areas.  He was killed by a missile on February 2, just outside of Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Humanitarian worker from N.J. killed in Ukraine is remembered for ‘his selflessness’ –
