Moustache Brewing Co. owners—and husband and wife—Matthew and Lauri Spitz will climb all the steps of 30 Rockefeller Center on February 28 to raise money for multiple sclerosis research and patient services.

The Spitzes hope to collect $10,000 in pledges between them, and their entire fundraising team has set a goal of $15,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s annual Climb to the Top, which starts in the basement of 30 Rock and goes up 70 stories.

Matthew was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, commonly called MS, in July 2013. MS is “an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body,” according to the society.

This is Lauri’s second time taking part in the Climb to the Top, and Matthew’s first. On January 14, they held a fundraiser at their brewery in Riverhead during which proceeds from all beer sales went toward MS. They named the event Dexterity Issues, and also gave a limited release double IPA beer that name.
