ILLINOIS -- Lottery players can now win, just by playing the newest game to hit the state. MS Project is a scratch-off game will all proceeds going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

From there, those dollars are passed out in grants to organizations conducting MS research in Illinois. One of those institutions is the University of Illinois' Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory. That's where Robert Motl studies the disease. He says MS stops people from moving and presents many challenges for people living with the disease.

Tickets are $2 each and are available at more than 8,000 lottery retailers in the state.
