I think you would have to look at each individual cause that is collecting for cancer causes, but on a whole level, I think the majority of it goes to cancer research, some of it may go to help pay for cancer treatments or medication for under/uninsured patients, but I don't know that for sure.

I've heard that most benefits money goes to Cancer research. I know that here where I live there have been several smaller events that have been put together to go directly to individuals who need something that their insurance may not pay for.
