    A program that helps kids get off the couch and start moving comes back to the area this summer. 

    Kids Bowl Free provides two free games of bowling every day at more than 1,200 participating bowling centers across America. Over two dozen alleys in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are getting in on the action this year, along with three centers in Delaware. Four of the centers are located in Philadelphia -- Erie Lanes, South Bowl, and two Thunderbird Lanes located on Castor Avenue and Holme Avenue.

    The program is designed to give back to local communities and provide a safe and fun way for kids to spend their summer.

    All kids are welcome to come try out the sport, but age restrictions vary from alley to alley. Kids at heart are always welcome to hit some pins, though there is still a cost.

    You can visit the Kids Bowl Free website for more information and to locate a participating center.
