On July 16, Kerr joined with LibertyHealth to announce the start of construction on The Cristie Kerr Women's Health Center, which will benefit breast cancer patients.

The center is under construction and, when finished in February 2010, will offer breast cancer screening programs, including free mammograms and education to women with or without insurance.

It will also provide detection, healing, support, and recovery services to patients. More information is available at cristiekerrgolf.com.
