RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The co-founder of an anti-land mine nonprofit is the new CEO of Make-A-Wish Vermont.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1JTLT6v ) James Hathaway began his new position Monday.

Established in 1989, Make-A-Wish Vermont has granted about 700 wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Hathaway says one of his goals is to “widen the scope of Make-A-Wish Vermont to include more central and southern Vermont.” He also plans to raise awareness statewide of the opportunities available to sick children from the foundation.

Hathaway succeeds Leslie Williams, who is retiring as president and CEO.

In 2000, Hathaway co-founded Clear Path International, a nonprofit that helps victims of land mines and other explosives left behind in former war-torn countries.
