SUPERBOWL RUN. On Sunday, January 26, rev up for a 10K run or a 5Kwalk. The Sun Run is a benefit for Life Directions, a peer-to-peer mentor program dedicated to motivating Tucson's at-risk young adults and youth. There's a waiting list 180-names long for young people that Life Directions would like to help. They can surely benefit from your walking, running and fund-raising. You'll be home in time to watch the game.

The Southern Arizona Roadrunners sponsor the run. It starts at Reid Park, 22nd Street and Country Club Road, at 9 a.m. For details about participating, call 323-6367.

ACHY, DOGGY HIPS. You think your joints are arthritic and painful? Dogs, and even old, bony cats, suffer greatly from the debilitating disease.

Dr. Lisa S. Newman is a naturopath who's developed the Holistic Animal Care Lifestyle (and even trademarked it). Come hear her suggestions for the role nutrition plays on various aspects of arthritis and similar bone and joint disorders on Wednesday, January 29, at 7 p.m.

Her lecture takes place at The Holistic Animal Care Shoppe located at 4044 N. Oracle Road in the Target Shopping Center. She'll field your questions afterwards and sign copies of her books on the subject. For details, call 886-8548.

IT'S ALL INTERTWINED. Race. Gender. Sexuality. How about connecting the dots around identity with visual art?

Nick Cave is a sculptor and performance artist from Chicago, well-known for his mixed-media work about masquerade and camouflage. He explores concealment and revelation, performance and construction of identity. As a black male in America, he's dug deeply into the crevices of experiences in his own life and that of others, weaving the multiple identities we wear.

His talk is part of a three-lecture series by queer visual artists, sponsored by the UA's Committee on LGBT Studies. It takes place on Thursday, January 30, at 6 p.m. in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Building auditorium at the northeast corner of Mountain Avenue and Speedway Boulevard. Call 621-1935 for details.
