Speedway Chapter 410 of the AHEPA strives to achieve the mission set by our founding fathers to promote Hellenism, Education, Philanthropy, Civic Responsibility, and Family and Individual Excellence.
Our organization is actively seeking new members and we welcome all those interested to contact us.
AHEPA feels part of its mission is to create an awareness of the principles of Hellenism to people outside the Greek-American Community.
AHEPA 410 was responsible for the creation of the New Smyrna Odyssey Memorial which pays tribute to the first Greek colonists to arrive in America.
The AHEPA continues in its pursuit to develop new and more responsive ways to meet our responsibility in creating a better learning environment for the youth of our community.
AHEPA Chapter 410 has awarded over $115,000 in scholarships to support the educational pursuits of our community’s youths.
The very meaning of the word philanthropy is rooted in the Hellenic ideal of "love of people." Therefore, it is a natural for AHEPA to be the leading Greek-American organization of philanthropic endeavors.
AHEPA 410 is proud to provide donations to many worth while causes in our community.
Including AHEPA national projects:
- St. Photios National Shrine
- Construction of the 400-bed AHEPA Wing to Evangelismos Hospital in Athens
- Dr. George Papanicolaou Cancer Research Institute in Miami
The AHEPA believes it is our civic responsibility to provide affordable housing to our senior citizens.
With that in mind AHEPA 410 completed the biggest project in our history with the construction of the 76 unit AHEPA 410 Apartments for senior citizens.
Family and Individual Excellence
What makes AHEPA unique from other organizations is the AHEPA Family.

The AHEPA Story
The AHEPA was founded in 1922 by individuals who shared a dream to build a better life for their families in a new land. But when they encountered discrimination and violence in their new home they stood up together, and they stood as one founding AHEPA to protect their families, defend their rights and fight for their dreams.
And when those battles were won, they worked even harder. To secure for their countrymen the same opportunities they had won through struggle and sacrifice, they helped thousands to become the first in their families to attend college. They raised over $263 million in war bonds for their adopted country in its time of need during World War II and $500 million more to provide affordable housing for seniors.
Ever since our founding fathers came together more than 85 years ago, AHEPA has been a proud part of the Greek American success story. Today’s Ahepans come together not only to honor that legacy, but to ensure it’s future in the 21st century.
